Spitballs into a War

But I think we could, in retrospect, with 20/20 hindsight, have sent a more robust hospital infection control team and been more hands-on with the hospital from day one about exactly how this should be managed.”

This is incredible. While Hollywood and pulp fiction loves to play up Ebola as the most-deadly virus ever discovered (it is not), it is still extremely serious. That it took the CDC “in retrospect with 20/20 hindsight” to realize they should have sent in a robust crew to help and/or manage the first “off-the-street” Ebola infection in the nation’s history is mind-blowing.

Other news reports, citing a nurses’ union report, that the hospital was, and still is, completely unprepared for the situation, including lack of proper protective equipment and numerous violations of protocol, if only half-true, are still unbelievable.

Hello Mr. Kraft,

Thank you for being the first person that I have seen so far to use the Twenty Fifteen theme, this gives me and other people a chance to see what it looks like and how it functions as it is still being improved, so I appreciate that because I like to stay updated about/with new free themes (especially the annual WordPress themes). 😉

Now about Ebola, the CDC response, the hospital response, et cetera (also it is good to see someone using a NPR article for a change, good job 😉 ); I agree with you and I think that it is sad, unacceptable, et cetera.

I hope that this proves to be a learning experience that will soon help improve things so that we can better avoid problems like this, and so that we can better deal with various disasters/et cetera to avoid unnecessary deaths/infections/et cetera.

Thanks for checking out my site with Twenty Fifteen :-). Thankfully, it sounds like the “scare” of Ebola is mostly past with no new cases popping up, but nevertheless, unbelievable.

Hello Mr. Kraft,

You are welcome, seeing Twenty Fifteen live/in real-time on your blog inspired me to try Twenty Fourteen again. 🙂

Yes, the Ebola Virus seems to be mostly contained in the USA for now probably, but the confusion/hysteria/et cetera about it is still going on probably. 😉

Thank you for responding, and have a nice day. 🙂
