Only hours after the Centers for Disease Control reassured the American public the health-care procedures at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas were adequate to contain Ebola, CDC announced a second health-care worker who treated the “index patient,” Thomas Eric Duncan from Liberia, has been diagnosed with the disease.
At an early morning press conference in Dallas, hospital officials admitted they are “learning as they go” as concerns mount nationwide that the CDC may not have fully understood how Ebola is transmitted and that CDC protocols may be inadequate.
CDC, nevertheless, said in an early morning press release Wednesday, “As we have said before, because of our ongoing investigation, it is not unexpected that there would be additional exposures.”
The nurse, however, identified as 29-year-old Amber Jay Vinson, took a flight from Cleveland to Dallas/Fort Worth on Monday, the day before she reported symptoms.
