CDC's insufficient protocol leads to another hospital worker contracting Ebola (UPDATES)

Sometimes you just want to scream, 'Hey, Sherlock!' Frieden, Fauci...these genius Obamabot bureaucrats don't have a clue! The fault lies in insufficient protocol and non-quarantine procedures, both failures of the CDC, not the nursing staff, and not even the hospital, of which there are only a handful in the U.S. equipped for such a disease.
AP: A second Dallas hospital worker who provided care for the first Ebola patient diagnosed in the U.S. has tested positive for the disease, pointing to lapses beyond how one individual may have donned and removed personal protective garb.

It's not clear how the second worker contracted the virus. Authorities declined to say what position she holds at the hospital or the type of care she provided to Thomas Eric Duncan, who was diagnosed with Ebola after coming to the U.S. from Liberia. Duncan died Oct. 8.

Officials have said they also don't know how the first health worker, a nurse, became infected. But the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said "an additional health care worker testing positive for Ebola is a serious concern."

"What happened there (in Dallas), regardless of the reason, is not acceptable. It shouldn't have happened," Anthony Fauci, director of the Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases of NIH, said on MSNBC Wednesday. ...

Dr. Tom Frieden, head of the CDC, has acknowledged that the government wasn't aggressive enough in managing Ebola and containing the virus as it spread from an infected patient to a nurse at a Dallas hospital.

"We could've 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," he said Tuesday.
No shit, Sherlocks. And I'm positive if you were to ask them about quarantining west Africa countries affected by this deadly disease & restricting flights from these areas to America, they'd still look at you like something's wrong with you.

We've had incompetency and worse traded for common sense, folks.

And still, these idiots running things refuse to restrict flights from infected African countries and properly quarantine aid workers during the disease's incubation period BEFORE returning to the States.
