Dr. Ben Carson knows a thing or two about medicine.
On Monday’s edition of Newsmax TV’s “America Forum,” Dr. Ben Carson shared his concerns about the decision to transport two Americans infected with Ebola from their African-based missionaries, back to the United States.
Criticizing the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the former director of Pediatric Neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins University claims that the CDC could have shipped the necessary medical equipment on a plane or set up a hospital in Africa.
Carson says even the smallest medical mishap could cause a chain reaction that could lead to an Ebola breakout in the United States, because the bodily fluids of an infected patient remain infected for days at a time.
When he was asked if the spread of Ebola in America was a justifiable fear, Carson said, “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.”
Meanwhile, CNN reports that a secret serum may have already saved the lives of the two Americans who contracted the deadly disease while on mission in Africa.
