Dr. Oz answered questions about Ebola again today. If you listen to what he’s saying, it’s pretty harsh. Basically he doesn’t consider us ready to deal with Ebola. At the end of the interview, he says he wouldn’t be ready to deal with the proper gowning techniques, even though he’s trained to gown as a surgeon to protect patients.
Some direct quotes from his responses:
“We are woefully unprepared to manage Ebola. We are doing a live experiment…when you start showing a fever you’re contagious…It takes weeks to train these nurses…we shouldn’t be concerned for our personal health but for our country…I’m not well trained to take care of people with Ebola…”
