CDC Chief Backtracks for Blaming Nurse Who Contracted Deadly Virus and Stresses All Hospitals Should ‘Think Ebola’
From the article:
The CDC chief today apologized for suggesting a nurse who contracted Ebola was to blame and admitted that the agency had to ‘rethink’ how to combat the deadly virus.
Dr Tom Frieden confirmed on Monday that Texas Health Presbyterian nurse Nina Pham, 26, who treated ‘patient zero’ Thomas Duncan, was in a ‘stable condition’ and that everything was being done to give her the best possible care.
However he added that even one case of the infection being contracted in the U.S. was ‘unacceptable’.
