On Thursday, Oct. 9, just a day after the first U.S. Ebola patient, Thomas Duncan, died in a Dallas hospital, Silvia Burwell, head of the Department of Health and Human Resources, dropped a metaphoric bomb on the country. Speaking to reporters at a media breakfast in Washington, D.C., Burwell admitted what Natural News editor Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, has been saying all along: The reality is, there could be more cases of the deadly disease around the country.
"We had one case and I think there may be other cases, and I think we have to recognize that as a nation," she said.
Meanwhile, the head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, compared the severity of the Ebola outbreak to an earlier deadly disease that continues to plague Mankind.
"I would say that in the 30 years I've been working in public health, the only thing like this has been AIDS," Dr. Thomas Frieden told a top-level Ebola forum in the nation's capital.
As outbreak widens U.S. officials now preparing us for more
Speaking to, among others, the heads of the World Bank, International Monetary Fund and the United Nations, Frieden added: "It's going to be a long fight. We have to work now so that it is not the world's next AIDS."
Finally, a U.S. Customs agent at New Jersey's Newark International Airport -- one of five major international hubs that handle 95 percent of air traffic from West Africa -- says the agency's personnel there are http://www.breitbart.com (the other four airports are JFK in New York City; Dulles International in Washington, D.C.; Hartsfield-Jackson in Atlanta; and O'Hare in Chicago).
"[Federal officials] are assuring the public everything is being done, but it is not," the agent, who chose to remain anonymous, told a local NBC affiliate.
With all of this in mind, then, it becomes much easier to believe that our government has been preparing for just such an emergency for years. As reported by Brandon Smith at the blog D.C. Clothesline:
I remember years back when I was still writing for my original website, Neithercorp.us, we came across a then little known video of air tight "coffin liners", hundreds of thousands, stacked in a field in the middle of Madison, Georgia in close proximity to Atlanta and the home of the CDC. We helped break that story which immediately swept through independent media circles. 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.
Smith went on to write that he never received confirmation of the liners from the agency.
That was a few years back. Now, he says, a confirmation of sorts has been given. In a Yahoo News report (see it here), the CDC says it has issued new guidelines for handling deceased Ebola victims: "[R]emains should be cremated or buried promptly in a hermetically sealed casket." Also, the casket must secure "against the escape of microorganisms" and have valid documentation for being airtight.
Smith noted in his blog post that a Dallas Institute of Funeral Service administrator interviewed for the Yahoo News report said he's never come across those kinds of caskets in his industry, which means "hermetically sealed coffins are NOT common in the slightest for burial."
Government expecting Ebola?
"The CDC coffins in Madison, Georgia, though, ARE designed to prevent spread of infection," Smith continued. "In fact, the patent for these coffins confirms that they are meant for the burial or cremation of bodies exposed to infectious diseases."
The stockpile, he concludes, means that the U.S. government has been a) buying such liners for years and b) expecting some sort of outbreak of this type for a similar period.
"Our government was so certain of a viral catastrophe they purchased fields full of sealing coffins to be ready for it; not to prevent it, but to have the means to clean up after it," Smith wrote. "Let that thought settle for a moment, and then read my latest article, 'An Ebola Outbreak Would Be Advantageous For Globalists', to understand the bigger picture."
