He Ain’t Got No Worries: Obama Hugged And Kissed Atlanta Ebola Workers (Video)
President Obama is so confident in the strength of Ebola procedures enacted by his administration, he’ll kiss you to prove his point.
In a press conference yesterday, Obama revealed he’d met with nurses from the medical team at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta last month.
The team met the needs of three Ebola-infected Americans, catching the virus quickly enough that all three patients are now healthy.
In thanks, Obama reportedly shook hands with, hugged and kissed several of the nurses. The president is not afraid of catching the virus, and he doesn’t want you to be, either.
At the conference, Obama assured the press that new, stronger protocols are in place to protect both the people caring for Ebola victims in the US and those suspected of contracting it.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as well as the president’s administration say they are “aggressively” pushing out information so local hospitals and clinics are prepared to deal with Ebola, should the need arise.
