The Center for Disease Control (CDC) cannot get their act together. Instead of giving a dead Ebola virus for observation by technicians in their Atlanta, Georgia headquarters, the CDC mistakenly sent a live sample to an ill-equipped lab.
Now the technician is being monitored for the next 21 days, which is the virus’s incubation period. Others who had contact with the technician are also being monitored.
