Many people are fed up with the US government’s handling of the Ebola situation. President
Ebola Obama has refused to implement a travel ban from West African countries that have known cases of Ebola. People are understandably concerned about that.
Some have wished for (jokingly or not) the deadly virus to find its way to DC.
They may have gotten their wish:
The Pentagon is now the latest place to suffer from an Ebola scare.
Around 9:10 a.m., a woman began vomiting in the Pentagon parking lot while on a bus tour, according to Pentagon spokeswoman Lt. Col. Valerie Henderson. The woman indicated she has recently traveled to Africa.
The Arlington County Fire Department was called to the scene. The woman has been transported to Inova Fairfax Hospital. (source)
Uh oh.
“Out of an abundance of caution and to allow the investigation to proceed, pedestrian and vehicular traffic around the Pentagon South Parking lot’s lanes 7-23 will remain restricted until further notice,” Henderson says.
The bus the woman was on then traveled to Capitol Hill. The bus was stopped on Virginia Avenue and the other passengers and the driver were being isolated on a second bus. Virginia Avenue is closed down while officials investigate.
Am I the only one who is tired of hearing “out of an abundance of caution” in nearly every mainstream news report about a possible Ebola case? Is that some kind of programming? I just did an internet search using the term “Ebola out of an abundance of caution”. About 420,000 results were returned.
