The nonprofit Greenville Health System in South Carolina recently published a job posting for an Emergency Preparedness Program Manager whose qualifications should include familiarity with “Ebola grants.” The ad is still posted on the Greenville Health System website with the posting date July 8, 2019. Greenville’s private health system now joins a variety of federal, state and city government agencies quietly preparing for Ebola — including the CDC and New York City, which started preparing for an Ebola outbreak as migrants from the disease-ridden Congo made their way to the U.S. southern border. Texas is now home to a “surge” of Congo migrants who crossed the border, with more migrants on their way. The global tracker Ebola Outbreak Map made another catch:
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the National Institutes of Health, as well as New York City and state and local governments began preparing for a possible Ebola outbreak shortly before the current Congolese migrant invasion on our southern border, as the Congo migrants journeyed from Africa to the United States.
The Lexington-Fayette County Health Department partnered with the CDC and the Kentucky Department of Health beginning in February to monitor people traveling to and from the Ebola outbreak region on the African continent, with the local department acting on guidance provided by the federal and state government bodies.
The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, which is a branch of the National Institutes of Health, sponsored a clinical trial beginning in late January at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital in Ohio to test Ebola vaccines.
The Congo migrant “surge” at the southern border continues, as recently-landed Congo migrants in San Antonio, Texas described their six-month journey to the United States — during which time the government started making Ebola preparations instead of acting to stop the illegal migrant invasion.
This makes New York mayor Bill de Blasio’s pro-migrant agitation at the border even more disingenuous, as I explained on Sunday’s episode of The Campaign Show with Patrick Howley on Patriots’ Soapbox.
