Ebola, TB, Lead Latest Concerns with Recent Immigrants to the US
The Price of Business Digital Network is a leader in providing thoughtful news and information on the important stories of the day. Here's the latest from a PoB Digital Network Member., 7/11/2019 - FROM THE TAILY BLAZE

By the Price of Business Show, Hosted by Kevin Price. The Price of Business is a media partner of this site.

Host: I am talking to you about you and your businesses, and certainly your business to be concerned about the Ebola situation, not only in Africa but the potential of it spreading right here in the United States of America, and I know that sounds a little farfetched. Of course, there’s a lot of resistance from the mainstream media, most of which aren’t discussed at all, but I am interested in the topic. To me it seems very plausible. Containment is really difficult, especially with how fluid our borders have become globally with mass movements of populations over the last decade. I have Jane Orient. She is here with us today. She is with Physicians for Civil Defense and Doctors for Disaster Preparedness. She’s a medical doctor. She has been on the program before, and we want to talk to her, but before we get into that whole question of how dangerous this could be for the United States, kind of give us a real quick overview of Ebola, what Ebola can do, and welcome to the show.

Ebola is a viral disease that is extremely contagious and highly lethal. We had an outbreak in West Africa back in 2014 and there was a lot of concern, a lot of media coverage back then because of a patient who showed up in Dallas who had Ebola, wasn’t at first recognized, and exposed a number of people. We discovered then that there may be only about six hospital beds in the whole United States that had the ability to treat such patients safely without the risk to workers and other patients. But then concern died down, and with great difficulty the epidemic was contained in West Africa. Now it has broken out in the Democratic Republic of Congo, which is also war torn, and it has been very difficult to bring under control there, and so one has to wonder exactly what is going on. We know there have been more than 1000 deaths in that area from Ebola and we know that hundreds of people who come from that region, from the DRC, are crossing our borders. And we don’t really know how they got there. We don’t know whether they were brought by air, we don’t know who paid for their trip, and we don’t know what the United States authorities are doing to identify and quarantine these people and make sure that they are not infected and able to spread the disease wherever they are being brought in the U.S., by bus or airplanes.

So how many did you say are on our border?

Well, reportedly hundreds have crossed the border that have been apprehended and that we know about. How many have crossed the border that we don’t know about, of course, is a good question....
