Dash: Why Weren't Dallas Hospital Staff Who Treated Ebola Patient Quarantined?
On The Kelly File last night, Megyn Kelly asked CDC Director Tom Frieden about possibility of a wider Ebola outbreak, to which Frieden replied, “We will not have a large outbreak of Ebola in the U.S.”
Now, a second healthcare worker at the Dallas hospital where Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan was treated has tested positive for the deadly virus, and many are questioning how prepared the CDC is for Ebola in the U.S.
On Outnumbered today, Stacey Dash said that Frieden knew more than he let on in the interview.
“I have a question,” Dash said. “Why [was] everyone – all the staff in that hospital that [Thomas Eric] Duncan was at – not put under quarantine once they found out he had Ebola? I don’t understand that.”
Harris Faulkner questioned Frieden’s choice of words during his Kelly File interview.
“It’s not necessarily going to be a ‘large’ outbreak? I mean, what is that? What does that mean? An outbreak is an outbreak.”
