The federal government is drying up the supply of Hazmat suits and protective gear according to several large distributors, fueling concerns that the deadly Ebola virus will continue to spread in the wake of yesterday’s fourth confirmed case.
According to one such company, Boss Safety Products, protective gear has now been placed on hold for “government needs” only, as major suppliers run completely out of stock.
“Due to the recent health concerns in the country, we have been inundated with phone calls and orders for items such as respirators and protective coverall clothing,” a recorded message from the company states. “As of last week, most coveralls are now in an allocated state, meaning they are on hold for government needs at this time. We apologize, but we and our suppliers are out of stock or are on back order for a number of coveralls and related items at this time.
Several other companies speaking anonymously with Infowars also confirmed the trend, noting that Hazmat suits, which are now “hard to come by,” are being set aside specifically for government use.
The announcement comes more than a month after the U.S. State Department’s purchase of 160,000 Hazmat suits, allegedly for combating Ebola in Western Africa.
With less than 2,000 federal medical workers currently treating patients in Ebola-stricken nations, the federal government’s recent acquisition seems to indicate an intended domestic use.
“Although the State Department has announced that it is planning a ‘surge’ of emergency medical personnel into western Africa, only 1400 federal workers are currently in the region, suggesting that the 160,000 figure is far higher than what would be required merely for sending medical workers abroad,” Infowars writer Paul Joseph Watson noted.
While the federal government claims to have the situation under control, medical doctors across the country have begun accusing the feds of “disappearing” potential Ebola patients in an attempt to downplay the severity of the outbreak.
Speaking exclusively with Infowars, James Lawrenzi, a doctor of osteopathic medicine in Missouri, revealed that health authorities throughout the state have been secretly removing patients with Ebola-like symptoms from hospitals without notice.
“These patients are disappearing, they’re doing something with the patients and God knows where they’re going,” Dr. Lawrenzi said.
In one such instance, medical workers were told that a disappeared patient simply had malaria despite “bleeding from every orifice,” a clear symptom of the Ebola virus.
