Doctor: Health Authorities Covering Up Ebola-Like Cases in U.S.
A doctor has exclusively revealed to Infowars that health authorities are covering up Ebola cases in the United States and disappearing patients in an effort to avoid hysteria.
James Lawrenzi, DO, who has two clinics in Garden City and Archie, Missouri, appeared on the Alex Jones Show today to warn that the true scale of the situation was being deliberately downplayed. It is important to note that none of these potential Ebola outbreaks occurred at the clinics in which Lawrenzi works.
Lawrenzi said that shortly after the arrival of patient zero – Thomas Eric Duncan – in the United States, he was told by a doctor at Truman Lakewood Medical Center in Kansas City they had taken in a possible Ebola patient who had a high fever and was bleeding out of all his orifices having recently returned from West Africa.
The following day, Lawrenzi was told by the doctor that the patient had “disappeared” against medical advice, but that he wouldn’t have been able to leave on his own given his medical condition.
The day after the patient disappeared, a meeting was called for anyone who had contact with the patient. Doctors and other medical workers were told that the patient had malaria. Lawrenzi also revealed that drug reps from within the area warned over additional possible Ebola cases in the area.
A second possible Ebola patient was then admitted to Research Medical Center in Kansas City the following day but also quickly “disappeared,” with hospital bosses claiming he had typhoid, according to Lawrenzi.
“These patients are disappearing, they’re doing something with the patients and God knows where they’re going,” said the doctor.
Asked why authorities were engaged in an apparent cover-up, Lawrenzi speculated that the CDC was attempting to prevent hysteria, noting that workers at his own clinics had been told not to use the word “Ebola,” just as 911 dispatchers in New York have been banned from using the term, or to reveal any information about a possible Ebola case.
Lawrenzi also revealed that Hospital Corporation of America (HCA), a private operator of health care facilities, had earlier this week removed protective gear and Hazmat suits from local hospitals without replacing it.
“They were told this was so they could have continuity of care for possible Ebola patients,” said Lawrenzi, adding that the real reason was that authorities didn’t want to cause a panic by having medical workers and doctors being seen in protective gear.
Urging people to “stay away from places where there’s large groups of people,” as well as hospitals, Lawrenzi said the situation was “much more serious than they’re letting on.”
“When flu season hits, people are going to be coming into the hospital for flu or Ebola, they’re not going to know what they have….it’s going to be a nightmare, every doctor I’ve spoken with is terrified of this fall,” said Lawrenzi.
“They’re preparing for something,” he added, speculating that the endgame could be medical martial law or the Obama administration’s complete takeover of the medical system.
Lawrenzi’s assertion that Ebola patients are being “disappeared” correlates with claims made by 27-year Border Patrol veteran Zach Taylor, who told Infowars that possible Ebola victims attempting to cross the border were also being secretly detained.
According to Infowars medical correspondent Dr. Edward Group, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is responding to only half the calls it is receiving from doctors reporting Ebola-like symptoms in patients. Dr. Group also talked with other health professionals and border patrol sources who confirmed that potential Ebola victims were being “disappeared” in an attempt to prevent panic.
Hospitals Threaten to Fire Workers for Using the Word ‘Ebola’
Kansas City, Mo., hospital workers are being threatened with termination if they do not refer to suspected Ebola cases as “viral illnesses” instead of Ebola.
Dr. James Lawrenzi, a Kansas City-area family physician, said hospital workers are being told not to use the word “Ebola” if they treat patients who may have the disease.
“They’re threatening people ‘you’ll be fired, you’ll be let go if you use the word “Ebola,”‘” Dr. Lawrenzi said, noting that the hospital he works at in particular, Cass Medical Research Center, has not had any suspected Ebola cases.
A doctor at Truman Lakewood Medical Center told Dr. Lawrenzi that a patient arrived at his hospital a few weeks ago with a high fever and was bleeding out all of his orifices after returning from West Africa, but the next day the patient disappeared from Truman Lakewood.
The hospital told its workers the patient, who wouldn’t have been able to leave the hospital on his own given his condition, had a case of “malaria,” which wouldn’t explain the patient’s orifice bleeding.
Similarly, another possible Ebola patient was admitted to Research Medical Center in Kansas City but also quickly disappeared, and management at that hospital claimed the patient had “typhoid.”
“These patients are disappearing, they’re doing something with the patients and God knows where they’re going,” Dr. Lawrenzi said.
Dr. Lawrenzi suspected that hospital managers, in partnership with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, are trying to prevent panic by labeling suspected cases as other illnesses, even if the symptoms do not match the declared disease.
Emergency dispatchers in New York were likewise told to use codewords to refer to suspected Ebola cases over the radio and were not allowed to reveal information on any of the cases handled by first responders.
“At no point shall a dispatcher transmit over the radio any message containing the word ‘Ebola’ or related terminology,” a New York Fire Department bulletin stated.
Instead dispatchers were told to use the code letters “F/T,” for Fever/Travel, to indicate that a 911 caller had a fever and a history of travel to West Africa.
And Dr. Lawrenzi’s revelation that patients are “disappearing” corresponds to an earlier statement by Border Patrol veteran Zach Taylor that illegal immigrants suspected of carrying Ebola are being secretly detained after capture near the border.
“Those people are disappearing, we don’t know what they have, where they’re going, where [the CDC’s] taking them – surely they’re being quarantined somewhere we just don’t know where and even the agents don’t know what the diagnosis is of these illnesses,” Taylor said.
Suspected Ebola Patient Witnessed ‘Bleeding Out of All Orifices’
A Missouri medical professional disclosed on today’s episode of the Alex Jones Show that doctors he’s friends with at other hospitals have seen patients exhibiting Ebola-like symptoms, such as extreme hemorrhagic bleeding, and that those patients were promptly ushered away to “God knows where.”
While many have speculated that US hospitals are under orders to downplay the possibility that patients have Ebola, industry medical professionals have largely remained silent on the outbreak.
However, Dr. James Lawrenzi, who holds a medical degree in Medicine and Biosciences, says it’s his duty to notify the public about the information he’s garnered behind the scenes.
The physician says he’s heard from other doctors that Ebola patients have been “disappeared,” and that at least one patient has been witnessed “bleeding out of all of his orifices.”
A short transcript of Dr. Lawrenzi’s interview with Alex Jones follows:
“About four weeks ago, when Ebola started kicking off here in the US, and all of a sudden you started hearing about patients possibly having Ebola and hospitals beginning to test for it… Well a friend of mine that’s a resident at Truman Medical Center, which is where I did my residency at, called me and said, ‘Hey, we got a possible Ebola patient here and he’s bleeding out of all of his…,” Well, I’m not gonna use the language he used but, ‘He’s bleeding out of all of his orifices, he’s in septic shock, hypotensive, high fever, he was visiting Africa, or he was from Africa, and had recently been here in the Kansas City area.
“And they took care of him in the ICU [Intensive Care Unit]. Of course, there’s not a rapid test so they weren’t sure, but they ordered the test and… they moved him to the ICU and they put him in isolation, from what my friend had told me.
“The following day he called me back and, cause I told him let me know – I wanted to call your show. I wanted to let people know, ‘Hey we got a case here in Kansas City’ – Well he called me back the next day and said they ‘disappeared’ the patient.
“I said, ‘What do you mean they ‘disappeared’ him?’
“He said, ‘The patient’s gone.’
“They were told he left AMA which means ‘Against Medical Advice.’ But the guy was… he wouldn’t have been able to leave he was in that bad of a shape.
“I said I’ll look for a ‘John Doe,’ which is a name they use in hospitals in case somebody’s admitted that they don’t know who you are. And there was no ‘John Does’ in the hospital, so the patient disappeared.
“So, the following day they had a meeting with anybody that had contact with that patient and said that he did not have Ebola, he had malaria.
“All of a sudden, that’s when we heard that all these other cases in other cities… They were coming back and saying, ‘No, they didn’t have Ebola, they had malaria.’ It seemed like that’s what they were told to tell everybody.
“Well then we had a second patient at Research Medical Center that was rumored to have, because I have friends there too, and they called me and said we have a possible Ebola patient. That patient disappeared.
“There’s a patient recently a KU Medical Center, which is just across from the Kansas side, about 20 minutes from here. And that patient, I don’t know what the status of that patient is, but they came out and said that he didn’t have Ebola, he had typhoid.
“So something very, very strange is going on. And I wouldn’t have thought much about it, but this happened in other areas of the country, not only Kansas City. These patients are disappearing, they’re doing something with the patients and God knows where they’re going.”
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, “bleeding out of every orifice,” as Dr. Lawrenzi described, is not a symptom of malaria:
Patients exhibiting typhoid fever symptoms, also according to the CDC, “feel weak, or have stomach pains, headache, or [experience] loss of appetite.” However, hemorrhagic bleeding does not appear to be a symptom of the bacterial disease.
Dr. Lawrenzi’s intel, which arrives straight from inside the medical industrial complex, mirrors statements made earlier this month by former Border Patrol Agent Zach Taylor and other sources, who confirmed that illegal aliens caught crossing the southern US border who were exhibiting any Ebola symptoms were being escorted away by teams of officials in Hazmat suits and vans.
“The agents are telling us that they’re seeing some people who are obviously sick, with shivering type illnesses, with possible dehydrating illnesses like diarrhea and vomiting,” said Taylor.
“Those people are disappearing, we don’t know what they have, where they’re going, where they’re taking them – surely they’re being quarantined somewhere we just don’t know where and even the agents don’t know what the diagnosis is of these illnesses,” Taylor said.
Given the preponderance of testimony disseminated from medical and government whistleblowers regarding possible Ebola cases evidently not being reported to the public, it’s entirely possible that more potential cases throughout the country exist, but are being kept under strict confidentiality – either to stave off public panic, or more nefariously, to allow the virus to spread.
