U.S. government officials joined health experts from throughout the Americas at an Ebola conference in Cuba on Wednesday, the latest show of cooperation between the historic adversaries on fighting the disease.

The meeting organized by ALBA, a bloc of leftist-governed countries, aims to coordinate a regional strategy on the prevention and control of Ebola, which has killed about 5,000 people in West Africa but in the Americas has only reached the United States.

U.S. military personnel and Cuban medical specialists are already posted in West Africa and prepared to work side by side if needed, officials have said, and Washington has expressed appreciation to Cuba for committing hundreds of doctors and nurses to the region to treat Ebola patients....

In the book World War Z, Cuba was one of the few places that survived the zombie outbreak.

They are, however, sending Cuban doctors to Africa to fight the disease. I wonder what their procedures are for having them return.

Our regime and their regime are no longer adversaries.

Haven't been since '09.

Somewhere posted on the Ebola Surveillance Thread. They will "proudly" spend 21 days in a Cuba hospital.

I think I would prefer the hospital tent in Jersey. Maybe they could move a couple of the retired Atlantic City slot machines there. Heck, I heard that JD Single Barrel offers prophylactic protection against encapsulated filovirus. We can dream.

Oh yeah, CUBA! Last I heard, Cuban swine were infected with the AFRICAN SWINE SICKNESS and the USA asked Mexico not to import Cuban swine as the disease might make it’s way across the southern border to destroy the US pork industry.

Now, Does Cuba really think it can hold off Ebola after it’s many military excursions into Africa?

True! Most will doctors will work there, find some US officials, defect to the USA and then be allowed into the USA without quarantine.

SNIPPET: “ALBA is the Alianza Bolivariana para los Pueblos de Nuestra América, an alliance of Latin American countries started by Cuba and Venezuela, who share a combination of hostility towards the United States and willingness to do business with Iran.”
SNIPPET: “Soheil Assad is not with the IRI Foreign Ministry - he’s an IRGC operative. And there he is, accompanying ALBA ambassadors & their staff on a visit to Qom.”

Fauci warned of ‘unintended consequences’ of ‘draconian’ quarantines during 2014 Ebola outbreak

| Fox News ^ | 45 minutes ago 2/19/21 | By Michael Ruiz
Resurfaced interviews show Dr. Anthony Fauci, who has been the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease since 1984, was opposed to “draconian” quarantines that could have “unintended consequences” – back in 2014 during an Ebola outbreak in Africa. He warned in late October of that year that enforcing mandatory quarantines would discourage medical professionals from volunteering aid in stricken areas. Governors from both major parties had imposed mandatory 21-day quarantines on people returning from affected countries in an effort to prevent the virus from spreading into the U.S. “The best way to protect us is to...
