CDC officials have told us the outbreak of Ebola on American soil — the first ever Ebola patient diagnosed outside of Africa is here — but don’t worry, they have everything under control.
They have continually reassured the public that they have complete confidence in their protocols and the American medical infrastructure which will follow those protocols to a ‘T’.
Except with Ebola Patient Zero, the hospital in Dallas that sent a man home who showed up with flu-like symptoms after just having returned six days prior from the Ebola-ravaged African nation of Liberia, the protocols and that infrastructure the CDC is so confident in has “regrettably” failed.
In the meantime, the video above shows that the CDC Director managed to contradict himself in just a minute-and-a-half regarding how Ebola is transmitted live on the national news.
Partial transcript (the particular clip begins at 5:44ish in the video above, emphasis added below):
Dr. Thomas Frieden, CDC director [standing right next to CNN’s Sanjay Gupta]: Well actually, Sanjay and I, if one of us had Ebola, the other would not be a contact right now. Because we’re not in contact. Just talking to someone is not a way to get infected. It’s not like the flu, not like the common cold. It requires direct physical contact.
CNN host Michaela Pereira: But if he sneezes on you, it’s a different story.
Sanjay Gupta: I think there’s a utility here because we’re having this conversation but I am within 3 feet of you. Wouldn’t I be considered a higher risk? My understanding reading your guidelines, sir, is that within 3 feet or direct contact — if I were to shake your hand, for example — would both qualify as being contact.
Frieden: We look at each situation individually and we assess it based on how sick the individual is and what the nature of the contact is. And certainly if you’re within 3 feet, that’s a situation we’d want to be concerned about. But in this case, where we haven’t hugged — we haven’t shaken hands — we have not had any contact that would allow either of our body fluids to be in contact with the other person.
Gupta: So, to Michaela’s point, the reason we talk about coughing and sneezing not being a concern — if you were to have coughed on me — you’re saying that would not be of concern?
Frieden: We would look at that situation very closely…
The lesson here? Stay as healthy as possible, work on boosting your immune system, get prepared and stop looking to the government to take care of you.
