CDC has already apologized for blaming the victim.
Do You have a source?
Thus proving my point. There is no such thing as truly ideal conditions
Except that's not how your point came across; it came across as "these are conditions ideal enough; therefore, the disease should not have spread".
if your disease management program starts with assuming that things are ideal it is going to fail.
It's not clear this assumption was made.
Why isn't anyone blaming the administration? The people responsible for drawing up procedures, training their staff, monitoring operations, having the proper resources and facilities to get the job done, yeah those guys.
When did it become the administration's responsibility for all medical knowledge? The CDC is one of dozens, if not hundreds of medical organizations.
It's just as likely aerosolized cough droplets, which is another thing the CDC insisted couldn't possibly happen.
When did the CDC say this? I know People have said the virus cannot become "airborne" but that's different than being shared via aerosolized droplets.
When it comes to a choice if blaming the victim or admitting that their protocol is woefully inadequate, the CDC seems to take the low road.
While I admit NBC has since changed its reporting on the issue I don't see any formal statements by Officials from the CDC "blaming the victim".
this is disregarding the two simultaneous cases we had last month in Atlanta.
I was "discounting" them due to the fact the infections not only occurred outside of the U.S. but the patients were specifically brought to the U.S. for treatment.
Note that this case is one of the 48 people who are currently being monitored due to contact with that ebola victim who brought it here from Africa.
While I agree We should not panic, this case is not 1 of the 48 according to NPR.
