Monday on Newsmax TV’s “America Forum,” Dr. Ben Carson said we should not have brought the Ebola infected missionaries back to the United States.
Carson criticized the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) pointed out we could send a hospital equipped plane or set up a properly equipped hospital on location in Africa.
The former director of Pediatric Neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins University and Hospital, explained a simple medical mistake could cause the disease to spread within the borders of the United States because the bodily fluids of an infected patients remain infected for many days.
When questioned whether the fear in the Untied States is a valid, Carson answered, “It is very real. It is a highly contagious disease and all it requires is some infractions in procedures and all of a sudden you have got more spread and that’s what I’m afraid of.”
