CDC Revises Guidelines for Treating Ebola

In response to the two nurses that contracted Ebola through Patient Zero, Thomas Eric Duncan, the Centers for Disease Control released new guidelines for health care workers on treating the disease. The Associated Press reports, “The new guidelines set a firmer standard, calling for full-body garb and hoods that protect workers’ necks; setting rigorous rules for removal of equipment and disinfection of hands; and calling for a ‘site manager’ to supervise the putting on and taking off of equipment. They also call for health workers who may be involved in an Ebola patient’s care to repeatedly practice and demonstrate proficiency in donning and doffing gear – before ever being allowed near a patient.” This was all done without the stalwart leadership of the Ebola czar, Ron Klain, who was appointed Friday, but has yet to attend a single meeting on Ebola (he missed two meetings so far). Meanwhile, The Hill’s Kristina Wong points out the level of response over three sick people illustrate the U.S. is unprepared for a biologic attack, like a BioBomber.
