This Will Not End Well...

Ace of Spades HQ: "What I see here is a strong suggestion not that the Dallas nurse breached protocol, but that the protocols she followed are flawed and inadequate. Sanjay Gupta dons the protective gear, then takes it off. It's the taking it off part that poses the greatest danger to the health care practitioner, as when she is taking it off, the protective clothing is possibly infected with ebola. Touching one's skin to a smear of ebloa-infected saliva on one's glove, for example, can result in infection. So the trick is to get the clothing off without touching your own skin with any part of the clothing, or the gloves. Gupta smears his gloves and his hospital gown with some chocolate sauce to represent possible ebola contact. The trick is then to get the gear off him without getting any chocolate sauce on his skin. Gupta takes off the clothing following what he says are CDC procedures, and winds up getting chocolate sauce on him."
... and is already going quite badly for nurses in Dallas and Spain.

The *asshat Obola flunky that runs the CDC has now make a half-hearted apology for accusing the nurse of breaching protocol.  How about apologizing for trying to get people killed like bugs while you're at it?

And then there's this little detail:
HEALTH COSTS: Ebola Preparation ‘Will bankrupt my hospital!’ Director Reacts to CDC Prep Call. “Treating one Ebola patient requires, full time, 20 medical staff. Mostly ICU (intensive care unit) people. So that would wipe out an ICU in an average-sized hospital.”
How well do you suppose that will "scale" if the *sshats at the CDC continue to show the stellar competence they have so far?

Oh, and did I forget to mention that Obola already has an Ebola "czar".  So why haven't we heard of her yet?  Well that would be because she is just another corrupt Obola crony who tried to get work on the Ebola treatments cancelled in favor of funding some other Obola crony of course.

What a shock.
