They say a picture tells a thousand words.. The internet has dubbed this man, Ebola Clipboard Guy..
Just before 4:00 p.m. Amber Joy Vinson, the 29-year-old Dallas nurse with Ebola who treated Thomas Eric Duncan, was transported by ambulance to Dallas Love Field Airport to be taken to Emory University Hospital in Atlanta for treatment. Around 4:40 p.m.
News crews were on the scene as the CDC assisted the woman when boarding the plane, but they managed to catch something a little more than unnerving. With the many members of the CDC (white) and the nurse (yellow) wearing protective gear, there was also an unidentified man with absolutely no protective gear on.
It appears as though the man is dressed in EMT attire, but there is no way to tell for certain. His presence has ruffled quite a few feathers. Needless to say, after the video was put on national television, the twittersphere erupted with those pointing out the serious oversight.
