I’m not a journalist. I’m a blogger. I comment on the news. That’s one of the things bloggers do. If you’ve been paying attention to the news it is obvious that the American healthcare system was not ready for the reality of Ebola.
The CDC (Center for Disease Control) has updated its protocols for caring for patients with Ebola. And it has updated the protective clothing medical teams need to wear when caring for patients with Ebola.
The president has appointed one person to oversee the medical response to Ebola on American soil.
And now Ebola in the USA has become a political issue; which is to be expected.
However, the USA is not West Africa. Fact must be separated from fear. In the opinion of this humble blogger, unless something unforeseen goes terribly wrong, an American has a far greater probability of being struck by lighting than being struck by Ebola.
Hospitals in Pittsburgh have informed the local media that they are now better prepared for their first case of Ebola.
