    I found it rather interesting that the administration through CDC decided to have a hospital, other than Emory, take care of the third American to come down with Ebola!

    Per the report, an SPOX said, "This is going to be a big outbreak in Africa. There are going to be patients who show up. It makes sense to improve infrastructure."

    SEE:http://www.newsweek.com/american-ebola-patient-arrives-omaha-treatment-268783

    At first that made sense to me, but then I thought to myself, is their a hidden agenda, that we do not know anything about?

    What say you???

    Why does there need to be a hidden agenda? Why can't they simply be letting another hospital have real world experience dealing with this so they are more prepared?

    They could've just left him to die in Africa.

    From the article: "According to a press conference given today by Nebraska Medical Center, the hospital has worked with Emory doctors to use isolation equipment more efficiently and ensure the virus is contained in its Biocontainment Patient Care Unit. The unit was established a decade ago, and has conducted drills four times a year."

    The hospital has been preparing for this for s decade. How is this even close to being a hidden agenda? I guess that begs the question. What is your agenda concerning this?
