Must Be A Magic Vest

Another Ebola-infected patient is brought to the US.

He's a native of Sierra Leone but also a US permanent resident so flying him here for treatment was apparently the thing to do.

NBC: Ebola-Stricken Surgeon Dr. Martin Salia 'Extremely Critical'

The article notes he's in very bad shape, however the most interesting part is this photo of him being loaded onto and ambulance upon his arrival for transport to the hospital:

Notice how everybody involved in the transport is in protective suits, masks and goggles except one guy.

The guy in the chatreuse vest that reads "Safety Officer".

Ok then.

You just can't make this stuff up. The punch lines write themselves.

Safety officer. Alrighty then.

We're good here.

And this morning, in the immortal words of Dr. McCoy: "He's dead, Jim"

I'm sorry for the guy and his family, but he shouldn't have been here in the first place.

Aaaaannndddd... the reason he was too far gone for them to save is that when symptoms first showed up he tested NEGATIVE for ebola and so treatment for it was delayed.

How's all that temperature taking of folks coming in from affected areas going?
