If this whole Ebola in Dallas thing didn’t have some SERIOUS possible consequences it would be laughable.
The inept emergency room folks on the 26th
The inept handling of the situation by both Texas/Dallas Public health and the CDC. (what, exactly, are they doing with all the money we spend in them, if they cannot react well to a single instance of a communicable disease?)
The fact that only today, 5 days later, are they doing any sort of disinfecting of the areas where Mr. Duncan vomited in the public spaces outside of the apartment where he was visiting….
This whole thing reads like an implausible scenario of a 1970’s disaster.horror flick.
Except it isn’t one. It is real….and there are people in charge who are inept enough to let things happen like this..,. I mean, I realize they are government workers, but still, shouldn’t we expect them to have some idea what to do….? Isn’t thre someone in charge who knows something?
Scary…and angering that the folks who should have known better and have known what to do…..didn’t. They couldn’t even send someone out to the apartment sidewalks with some bleach water and a Hudson sprayer to disinfect….they let a work crew PRESSURE WASH the sidewalk….possibly aerosoliszing the infectious residue…
Like a bad book….First there was one…then 6, then 25, then…
The above illustrates the ineptness of the folks in Dallas. Note: It isn’t a steam cleaner, but a pressure washer.
