2nd health worker infected with Ebola in Dallas

There seem to have been some major protocol failures at the hospital in Dallas where Mr. Duncan was treated — now a second health care worker has become infected.

It is unconscionable that while this is going on the Republicans have continued to block the approval of President Obama’s nominee for Surgeon General merely at the behest of the NRA.

DALLAS (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, and officials on Wednesday began reaching out to passengers who had been on a flight with her the day before she fell ill.

It’s not clear how the worker contracted the virus, though the second case among health workers pointed to lapses beyond how one individual may have donned and removed personal protective garb.
