Watson said the Center for Disease Control is aware of many cases of individuals who could have Ebola but is hesitant to release the information to the public.

“The CDC told Time Magazine yesterday that they were receiving dozens of calls from hospitals and state authorities from across the country warning that they’re taking in patients who recently returned from West Africa with Ebola-like symptoms, so we’ve got numerous alerts being sent out by these hospitals. It appears that the CDC is trying to keep it under wraps to a certain extent,” he said.

He stated that Canadian officials disagree with CDC assessments that the disease cannot be transmitted through the air.

“There was a study by 2012 by Canadian scientists who found, at least to a limited degree, Ebola, this new strain of it, had gone airborne, because they put monkeys and pigs in a pen, separated by a barbed wire fence, so no actual physical contact, and most of the monkeys in the experiment got the Ebola virus. They inhaled, got the respiratory syndrome and died. They concluded that it was airborne to a limited extant,” Watson commented.
