Nurse Who Treated Dallas Ebola Patient Tests Positive for Ebola

Ebola Patient

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta has come under scrutiny for pointing the finger of blame at a nurse who contracted the deadly Ebola virus while caring for an Ebola patent in Dallas.

The nurse, who treated Thomas Eric Duncan in the isolation unit at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital, is the 2nd person to be diagnosed with Ebola on U.S. soil. Duncan, who was the first person diagnosed in the U.S., died on Oct. 8.

“Unfortunately it is possible in the coming days that we will see additional cases of Ebola,” Frieden said during a press conference. “Because the health care workers who cared for [Duncan] may have had a breach of the same nature of the [nurse] who appears now to have a preliminary positive test.”

The CDC’s preemptive finger pointing at the health care worker is raising concern among doctors and nurses, who say health care workers are not properly trained to treat patients with Ebola.

Only 4 hospitals in the country have isolation units that specialize in treating and containing infectious diseases like Ebola and Marburg. Still, the White House refuses to order the mandatory transfer of Ebola patients to one of those 4 hospitals for treatment.

    This whole fiasco could have been avoided if Obama had stopped flights from West Africa. I am convienced the ” index patient” knew he was ill and came to America to seek treatment. He should have be immediately sent back to Liberia! Very sad day in America for all involved.
