US Officials to nip the Ebola virus in the butt in 2015

Washington, DC (February 7, 2020) – The Coronavirus outbreak has the White House pulling out all stops to stop the virus in its track much Like President Obama did in 2015 with the Ebola Virus. In the Ebola case all passengers on any domestic US flight, who look like they might potentially lie to TSA airport screeners about having the deadly Ebola virus, were asked to drop their pants and submit to a rectal thermometer. Although the Ebola virus symptoms were alarming at the time when a person had a temperature of 101.5, any traveling passenger with a fever of  87.9 was not be allowed to board any commercial airline. The Coronavirus doesn’t hysteria just yet. Some of the more common signs of infection of the Coronavirus include respiratory symptoms, fever, cough, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties.

A little different approach than President Obama had in 2015:

“If we need to inconvenience and embarrass a few million travelers, then that is what we need to do. We all must sacrifice,” stated President Obama. “Look, it’s just not the everyday folks who must suffer. I had to cancel two fundraising trips because of this Ebola crap.”

So far, as of today, February 13, 2020, 15 people have died from the deadly virus in the United States, but several others have contracted the disease and are currently quarantined. According to CNN, more than 7,300 people are being quarantined on two cruise ships off Hong Kong and Japan amid concerns passengers and crew were inadvertently exposed to the Wuhan coronavirus by infected passengers. The patients are being treated at different US hospitals, under the lack-luster, watchful eye of the Center for Disease Control.

Have a Disease-free day!
