Ebola in the US: Frieden calls Texas case a ‘Breach of Protocol’, Sen John McCain wants an ‘Ebola Czar’

With the early morning report of the first domestically acquired case of a Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) in a Dallas hospital employee, a female nurse, the upper brass at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) say the transmission was due to a “breach of protocol” and warns Americans that additional Ebola cases would not be a surprise.

CDC director Dr. Thomas Frieden said this morning on CBS’s “Face the Nation”: “We’re deeply concerned about this new development.

“I think the fact that we don’t know of a breach in protocol is concerning because clearly there was a breach in protocol.”

In addition, Frieden warns the American public that more cases are possible. “It is possible that we will see more Ebola cases,” Frieden said. “We will undertake a complete investigation of how this may have occurred. That’s so important, so we can understand it better, and intervene to prevent this from happening in the future.”

In responding to the Ebola situation in the US in a twist of irony, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) called for an “Ebola Czar”. Telling CNNs Candy Crowley in an interview today, McCain crowed, “We were told there would never be a case of Ebola in the United States and obviously that’s not correct.” He said, “There has to be some kind of czar” to manage the disease in the U.S. “I’d like to know who’s in charge, among other things.”

The irony? A short five years ago, Sen McCain wrote in a tweet criticizing President Obama and his bevy of czars: “Obama has more czars than the Romanovs — who ruled Russia for 3 centuries. Romanovs 18, cyberczar makes 20.”
