  • CDC Releases Ebola Recommendations for US Hospitals

    Now that the first patients with Ebola are arriving in US hospitals, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has released infection prevention and control recommendations for patients with Ebola hemorrhagic fever.

    Although the recommendations focus on the hospital setting, guidelines for personal protective equipment (PPE) and environmental infection control measures are applicable to any health care setting. The recommendations will be reevaluated and updated as additional information becomes available.

    • The fact that an experimental medicine is being administered to only two white Americans while none is administered to black Africans is the sort of thing that jumps off the page. How sad.

    • What have you done personally to help those africans Pacheco? Rather than be negative and lash out, make your own difference, if it really matters to you. Join peace corp or start a charity. Do something other than make a racial case out of this. Discrimination will never end with the kind of comments you made. I am a white american and I want help for those same people, just like you, so how about finding a better way to help.
