Infectious disease specialist rejects 'powers that be' claiming 'we have it all under control'
A doctor working in south Texas is raising concerns that the Ebola strain recently contracted by a Dallas nurse may have undergone a mutation.
Infectious Disease Specialist Dr. Michael Jelenik says he’s troubled by the circumstances surrounding Dallas Presbyterian Hospital nurse Nina Pham’s recent contraction of the Ebola virus.
Pham, 26, was one of a team of medical staff tending to Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan before his death last week.
On Sunday, Texas health officials announced Pham had tested positive for the Ebola virus, even though she was careful to wear protective gear when she came in contact with the infected patient.
