President Barack Obama is “cautiously more optimistic” that we may be turning the corner in the fight against Ebola. Two infected Americans are cured; Nigeria and Senegal are Ebola-free; and dozens of people who came in contact with now-deceased Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan didn’t get the virus. “It gives you some sense that when it’s caught early and where the public health infrastructure operates effectively, this outbreak can be stopped,” he said.

Medical Professional: Health Authorities Covering Up Ebola Cases in U.S.
Exclusive: Patients being “disappeared” to prevent panic
A medical professional has exclusively revealed to Infowars that health authorities are covering up Ebola cases in the United States and disappearing patients in an effort to avoid hysteria.
James Lawrenzi, DO, who has two clinics in Garden City and Archie, Missouri, appeared on the Alex Jones Show today to warn that the true scale of the situation was being deliberately downplayed.
Lawrenzi said that shortly after the arrival of patient zero – Thomas Eric Duncan – in the United States, he was told by a doctor at Truman Lakewood Medical Center in Kansas City they they had taken in an Ebola patient who had a high fever and was bleeding out of all his orifices having recently returned from West Africa.
The following day, Lawrenzi was told by the doctor that the patient had “disappeared” against medical advice, but that he wouldn’t have been able to leave on his own given his medical condition.
The day after the patient disappeared, a meeting was called for anyone who had contact with the patient. Doctors and other medical workers were told that the patient had malaria.
A second possible Ebola patient was then admitted to Research Medical Center in Kansas City the following day but also quickly “disappeared,” with hospital bosses claiming he had typhoid, according to Lawrenzi.
“These patients are disappearing, they’re doing something with the patients and God knows where they’re going,” said Lawrenzi.
Asked why authorities were engaged in an apparent cover-up, Lawrenzi speculated that the CDC was attempting to prevent hysteria, noting that workers at his own clinics had been told not to use the word “Ebola,” just as 911 dispatchers in New York have been banned from using the term, or to reveal any information about a possible Ebola case.
Lawrenzi also revealed that Hospital Corporation of America (HCA), a private operator of health care facilities, had earlier this week removed protective gear and Hazmat suits from local hospitals without replacing it.
“They were told this was so they could have continuity of care for possible Ebola patients,” said Lawrenzi, adding that the real reason was that authorities didn’t want to cause a panic by having medical workers and doctors being seen in protective gear.
Urging people to “stay away from places where there’s large groups of people,” as well as hospitals, Lawrenzi said the situation was “much more serious than they’re letting on.”
“When flu season hits, people are going to be coming into the hospital for flu or Ebola, they’re not going to know what they have….it’s going to be a nightmare, every doctor I’ve spoken with is terrified of this fall,” said Lawrenzi.
“They’re preparing for something,” he added, speculating that the endgame could be medical martial law or the Obama administration’s complete takeover of the medical system.
Lawrenzi’s assertion that Ebola patients are being “disappeared” correlates with claims made by 27-year Border Patrol veteran Zach Taylor, who told Infowars that possible Ebola victims attempting to cross the border were also being secretly detained.
According to Infowars medical correspondent Dr. Edward Group, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is responding to only half the calls it is receiving from doctors reporting Ebola-like symptoms in patients. Dr. Group also talked with other health professionals and border patrol sources who confirmed that potential Ebola victims were being “disappeared” in an attempt to prevent panic.
CDC Ignoring Half of Potential Ebola Cases
Doctors concerned by CDC’s lack of response to Ebola
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention is responding to only half the calls it is receiving from doctors reporting Ebola-like symptoms in patients, according to doctors who spoke to Infowars medical correspondent Dr. Edward Group.
The CDC’s lackluster response to upwards of 40 calls a day regarding potential Ebola cases is disturbing to the medical professionals who spoke to Dr. Group and it follows a similar pattern of performance by CDC officials who were slow to decontaminate both the apartment of the late Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan and the ambulance used to transport him to the hospital.
When asked to comment on the response rate to these calls, the CDC Media Relations office at first referred us to its unrelated “CDC Hotline” and then refused to connect us directly to a public information officer on a sequential call because the office is screening questions from the press.
It’s no wonder then that doctors are having similar problems reaching the CDC, and such behavior is typical of the agency, which has so far placed more emphasis on the proper burial of Ebola victims than following proper disease protocols meant to prevent the virus from spreading in the first place.
Case in point, the CDC is now instructing funeral homes to bury Ebola victims in sealed caskets and had previously warned funeral workers not to embalm corpses.
Additionally, previous reports suggested the CDC had purchased thousands of airtight coffin liners and were storing them in Madison, Georgia.
“Owners of the property leased to store the hermetically sealing plastic coffins stated that it was the CDC that had rented the land for storage of the coffins,” wrote journalist Brandon Smith. “Confirmation from the CDC has not been forthcoming.”
But when it comes to preventing the spread of Ebola, the CDC’s director, Dr. Tom Frieden, is against stopping travelers from Ebola-struck countries who were potentially exposed to the disease and want to enter the U.S.
“I have been asked whether we should stop travel to Liberia,” he said. “The answer is no: to keep Americans and people in non-affected countries safe, we must continue to work to support efforts to stop the spread of Ebola in Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone.”
It’s a stretch for Dr. Frieden to suggest that Americans are being kept safe from Ebola considering that multiple people are still in quarantine after coming into close contact with Duncan, a Liberian national who died from the disease a few weeks after arriving in Dallas, Texas on Sept. 20.
This would never have happened had the Obama administration restricted travel from Liberia and other West African nations in the first place.
