VIDEO-Today, Pres. Obama addressed the case of the second health care worker to be diagnosed with Ebola in Dallas, Joy Amber Vinson, by saying he has so much faith in the protocols followed by hospital health care workers that he hugged and kissed them.
Vinson is being transported to Emory Hospital in Atlanta,where three previous Ebola patients have been treated, two of whom were released in August. The third arrived in September. Speaking in the White House Cabinet Room,Obama said he “felt perfectly safe” hugging, kissing and shaking hands with the Emory nurses:
“I want to use myself as an example just so that people have a sense of the science here. I shook hands with, hugged, and kissed not the doctors, but a couple of the nurses at Emory because of the valiant work that they did in treating one of the patients. They followed the protocols, they knew what they were doing, and I felt perfectly safe doing so.”
