A passenger died on a Nigeria-to-JFK flight after a vomiting fit — and a top lawmaker said officials gave the corpse only a “cursory” exam before declaring that the victim did not have Ebola.
Although he could have died from aspirating his stomach contents, airline food you know! But how did the CDC officials so quickly determine that the dead passenger didn’t die of Ebola just by looking at him, when an ER crew with lab tests etc. at Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas didn’t know that Dunkin from Liberia had Ebola and sent him home? Does anything the CDC says or does make any sense at all? If you believe any of this elephant dung then you are drinking the politically correct Kool-Aid my friend.
Rep. Peter King said in a letter to Homeland Security and Customs and Border Protection that even the handling of the remains exposed serious flaws in airport preparedness for an Ebola outbreak. Between 70 and 100 passengers a day arrive at JFK from the Ebola epicenter countries of Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea, King noted, and they have access to public restrooms and mingle with other travelers before their first Ebola screening.
“Given the high volume of travelers at JFK, it is essential that extraordinary measures are taken to intercept possible Ebola-infected passengers, while keeping the public and first responders safe.” King (R-LI) wrote to Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson and Customs Commissioner Gil Kerlikowske.
“These individuals transit the airport with the rest of the traveling population, including using the restrooms,” King called the protocol followed after the passenger died, alarming. It is only after they arrive at the Customs and Border Protection primary screening location that they are separated and sent to secondary inspection for a medical check and to complete the questionnaire,” he wrote Johnson.
His letter demands Homeland Security immediately beef up protocols for potentially infected passengers both in flight and at the terminal itself, prior to their reaching the screening location.
The letter also demands better training and safety equipment for the Port Authority police and Customs and Border Protection officials who can come into contact with high-risk passengers.
The unnamed passenger, age 63, had boarded an Arik Air plane Wednesday night out of Lagos, Nigeria, which has had 19 Ebola cases this year though no new cases in the past month.

He was vomiting in his seat and died sometime before the plane landed around 6 a.m., the source said. The crew contacted the CDC, whose officials boarded the plane as about 145 worried passengers remained on board, a federal law enforcement source said.
“The door [to the terminal] was left open, which a lot of the first responders found alarming. The CDC went on the plane, examined the dead body and said the person did not have Ebola,” King told The Post. “It was, what I was told, a cursory examination. The Port Authority cops and personnel from Customs and Border Protection were there. . . Their concern was, how could you tell so quickly? And what adds to the concern is how wrong the CDC has been over the past few weeks.” Said the source.
Needless to say, the CDC declined to comment on the passenger.
THE BOTTOM LINE: Either the CDC, Homeland Security, and every other government agency, is totally incompetent or they are purposely trying to create a West African pandemic in the U.S.
Why would they do that? Read the previous article.
