The director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention told reporters on a conference call Sunday that the first diagnosed case of Ebola in a patient has made people “scared.” “It’s normal to be scared, in fact for the healthcare workers who are caring for people with Ebola, we want them to be scared… to have a healthy respect of the risk of any lapse in infection control procedure,” said Tom Frieden, MD. “We want to channel that fear into being incredibly meticulous about infection control.”
