CDC Now Says Ebola Droplets Travel Six Feet, Not the Previously Stated Three


CDC pulls their old Ebola fact document from their website which stated Ebola droplets travel three feet. Now they say it's six feet. WTF is going on here?

Just days ago, on October 27, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention posted an information flyer on their website about how a person can and cannot be infected with the Ebola virus. The old document stated that Ebola is not airborne and can only infect a person through droplet spread. The document stated, "Droplet spread happens when germs traveling inside droplets that are coughed or sneezed from a sick person enter the eyes, nose, or mouth of another person. Droplets travel short distances, less than 3 feet (1 meter) from one person to another".

Just today, the CDC pulled that old document [the link above, in my previous story will now take you to the new document, which is why in addition to linking to my sources, I post screen shots] and replaced it with a new one which now states, "A person might also get infected by touching a surface or object that has germs on it and then touching their eyes, mouth or nose. Droplets generally travel shorter distances, less than about 6 feet from a source patient".

This begs the obvious question: Does the CDC know what the fuck they are even talking about concerning this deadly virus? I would bet everything I own that answer is a big fucking "NO". One might react to this and say, "Well, they can only tell us what they know as they receive information about it". BS!! The CDC is supposed to know every detail about this disease. It's nothing new. It has been around for 38 years.

It would be one thing for the CDC not to know what precautions to take, but to not know how many feet the Ebola droplets can travel to infect others? That's not only inexcusable and not believable, but in my opinion, criminal.

Why isn't anyone from the CDC being criminally charged? What if it was found out later that someone with Ebola heeded the CDC's advice from the October 27 instruction flyer [that was pulled] and they went near people and only stood four feet away, or five feet away because of the CDC's previous instruction that Ebola droplets can only travel 3 feet? That infected person would have been obeying the CDC's instruction and still infected people because now the CDC states the droplets can travel six feet.

What makes the CDC's actions even more criminal is the fact that during a press conference on October 7, CDC Director Tom Frieden stated that Ebola can only be spread through direct contact with a sick person or the fluids of a sick or dead person. Frieden said:

"Ebola spreads by direct contact with someone who is sick or with the body fluids of someone who is sick or died from it. We do not see airborne transmission in the outbreak in Africa. We don’t see it elsewhere in what we’ve seen so far."

First, the CDC tells us that it can only spread through direct contact with a sick person or their body fluids [The obvious interpretation of this is walking directly up to the person and touching their wet tongue or sweat].  Then the CDC tells us that it is not airborne and can only be spread through the droplets of a sick person sneezing or coughing and that these droplets can only travel 3 feet. Now, the CDC says they can travel six feet.

A flip-flopping politician can be laughed off and ignored. But flip-flopping when it comes to life and death matters should be prosecuted. Why is Frieden not being arrested for misleading the public on matters of life and death? Why is Obama not at least firing him? Why are people not being mandated to be quarantined? Why is the government not doing a damned thing about this?

The CDC Says Ebola Is Not Airborne, Yet Their Definition of How It Spreads Is Almost Identical to the Flu, Which IS Airborne


CDC claims Ebola is spread by traveling droplets coughed or sneezed from an infected person, which is also how they say the flu is transmitted. Yet the flu is airborne and Ebola is not?

A new flyer released three days ago by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention explains the differences between airborne viruses and droplet spread viruses, and lists definitions. The CDC explains that airborne viruses happen "when a germ floats through the air after a person talks, coughs, or sneezes. Germs may land in the eyes, mouth, or nose of another person".

Then, under "droplet spread" viruses, it states, "Droplet spread happens when germs traveling inside droplets that are coughed or sneezed from a sick person enter the eyes, nose, or mouth of another person. Droplets travel short distances, less than 3 feet (1 meter) from one person to another".

Near the bottom of the flyer is a short FAQ section. It states, "Is Ebola airborne? No. Ebola is not spread through the airborne route nor through water or food".

The next question states, "Is Ebola spread through droplets? Yes. To get Ebola, you have to directly get body fluids (like pee, poop, spit, sweat, vomit, semen, breast milk) from someone who has Ebola in your mouth, nose, eyes or through a break in your skin or through sexual contact".

All well and good right? The CDC is saying the Ebola virus cannot be transmitted through the air, but by direct contact with someone else's bodily fluids. But, when we read the CDC's definition of how the flu is spread, we see something very interesting.

On the CDC's flu page on "how it spreads" it says this:

"People with flu can spread it to others up to about 6 feet away. Most experts think that flu viruses are spread mainly by droplets made when people with flu cough, sneeze or talk. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs. Less often, a person might also get flu by touching a surface or object that has flu virus on it and then touching their own mouth or nose".

Interesting. Here, the CDC is basically saying that the flu is spread in the exact same manner the Ebola virus is spread, through droplet spread...when people infected with the flu cough, sneeze or talk to another person. This is nearly identical to the definition given by the CDC for how Ebola is transmitted, "when germs traveling inside droplets that are coughed or sneezed from a sick person enter the eyes, nose, or mouth of another person", yet the CDC claims Ebola is not airborne, but the flu is.

The CDC is simply playing word games here. Notice how they try to mask words in both definitions [for transmitting Ebola and the flu]. Under the Ebola transmission definition, they state the "germs traveling inside droplets" must be coughed or sneezed into another person's eyes, nose or mouth for that person to be infected. Under the flu transmission definition, they simply just omit the word "germs" and say it's the droplets themselves that can infect a person with the flu.

What's the difference between "germs inside of droplets" and just "droplets"? Absolutely nothing, since germs are obviously inside droplets of people with the flu when they sneeze and cough on someone, or else there would be no way for them to spread the flu [if there were no transmission of germs].

Since the CDC admits that Ebola can be spread through the transmission of droplets from a sick person [whether it be spit or sweat] to another person's eyes, nose or mouth, why is this not considered "airborne" since they admitted in their flu definition that "flu viruses are spread mainly by droplets made when people with flu cough, sneeze or talk. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lung"?

If I have Ebola and I spit in someone's mouth, nose or eyes, why is this not considered airborne to the CDC, when they have admitted the flu is transmitted the exact same way and that is airborne?

So, the obvious question needs to be asked: Why is the CDC lying to the American people by telling us all that the Ebola virus is not airborne when their definition of how to transmit Ebola is practically identical to how the flu is spread? Everyone knows the flu is airborne. This is why people with the flu are told to stay home from school or work, so that others cannot be easily infected since it is airborne. A more important question is, why is no one holding the CDC accountable for the purposeful deception and outright lying about a disease that can kill?

A person with the AIDS virus who purposely and knowingly transmits their disease onto another person can be convicted in a court of law for infecting another person when they knew they carried a deadly disease in their body. So, tell me, why is the CDC allowed to get away with the very same crime for purposely misleading the American public for knowingly telling everyone that the Ebola is not airborne while they admit that the Ebola virus is transmitted in the exact same manner as the flu?

This is criminal activity to say the least and Obama is solely responsible since he has the authority to fire the CDC director and to enact Ebola guidelines like making quarantining mandatory for those infected with Ebola.
