To Thomas Eric Duncan and his family.
Well, Ebola out of Africa. Ebola in North America. Is this just the Beginning, or it is an End, too? Hopefully.
I’m glad to hear our government is building temporary hospitals in Liberia and sending medical technology to help stem the outbreak there.
I guess, like a lot of other people, I still want to know what happened. Someone from Liberia sick with a fever. It was in the computer system for all to see. I guess one of the lessons of Vietnam and the Cold War is that we aren’t supposed to “embarrass” or call out the Government or Authority, or they lie to us and cover stuff up and hurt even more people. So . . . . Hopefully, someone will “post mortem” the process and determine if there are Lessons Learned from this series of events.
Because the Secretary of Health and Human Services says that there *may* be more Ebola in the U.S. Is that *may* in that there is, but they think they can keep it quiet? Yeah. I think what we have learned here, at least, is that primary care professionals may not look for a foreign disease, even if it is all over the news. And the lessons no doubt continue through the timeline.
Learning and change is not necessarily fun: that’s why it is Work, not Play.
The History of Change in America is largely driven by Disaster. One thing that doesn’t change.
