U.S. workers without protective gear assisted coronavirus evacuees, HHS whistleblower says



 


Source: Washington Post

Officials at the Department of Health and Human Services sent more than a dozen workers to receive the first Americans evacuated from Wuhan, China, the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak, without proper training for infection control or appropriate protective gear, according to a whistleblower complaint.

The workers did not show symptoms of infection and were not tested for the virus, according to lawyers for the whistleblower, who is a senior HHS official based in Washington who oversees workers at the Administration for Children and Families, a unit within HHS.

The whistleblower is seeking federal protection because she alleges she was unfairly and improperly reassigned after raising concerns about the safety of these workers to HHS officials, including those within the office of Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar. She was told Feb. 19 that if she does not accept the new position in 15 days, which is March 5, she would be terminated.

The whistleblower has decades of experience in the field, received two HHS department awards from Azar last year, and has received the highest performance evaluations, her lawyers said.

No worries. We have the best bullshitters. They can fake us through anything. No need to listen to experts. 
 

As long as nothing happens, that might work.

What kind of moron health workers would let themselves be put in that situation?  Did they send the 3 stooges? 

I've been exposed to shit, including TB, but it was only because we didn't know what we were walking into.

They weren’t health workers. They were administrative personnel in the Administration for Children and Families

Sounds like the typical sick “find a way to make them quit” shit from sick fucks.
Oh shit. They just sent some randos with no clinical experience to help out folks with a new deadly disease? 

What in the fuck?

A real leader early on...."Hey guys...this could really really turn to shit fast.  And bite us on the ass.  Make sure we treat this as a high priority, and make sure we do things by the book.  All precautionary measures are to be followed.  Is everybody clear on this?"

THAT is what a real leader says to those involved.

I must of missed the part of the article that talks about the hands on role the president plays in setting training standards at HHS.
I give you credit bravery, as the only one of the elk to show up in this thread.

How about giving credit His Orangeness for not threatening to have the whistleblower killed, like last time... yet.

Suck it up, buttercup. The "Buck stops here" has been a presidential motto for a long time.

Even more worrying is this

The first suspected U.S. case of a patient getting the new coronavirus through "community spread" — with no history of travel to affected areas or exposure to someone known to have the COVID-19 illness — was left undiagnosed for days because a request for testing wasn't initially granted, according to officials at UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento, Calif.

The patient in Northern California is now the 60th confirmed case of the coronavirus in the United States. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention disclosed the latest case Wednesday evening, as President Trump assigned Vice President Pence to lead the administration's response to the disease.

"This case was detected through the U.S. public health system — picked up by astute clinicians," the CDC said in a brief statement about the new patient.
