Unnamed man transporting Ebola patient without protective gear ensures ‘higher level of safety,’ officials claim

Friday, December 04, 2015 by

The official screenplay for Ebola Outbreak: USA Edition has taken a major plot twist, as the second Dallas health worker to contract Ebola was intentionally transferred to Atlanta alongside a mystery man who was not wearing a hazmat suit. When questioned about this, the airline responsible claimed that the man was purposely not suited up in order to improve safety.

The social-media-sphere blew up after video footage of the unnamed man entering a Phoenix Air jet in plain clothes began to circulate. People from around the world expressed outrage that the man was handling equipment, moving items and performing other duties in regular clothing and apparently without gloves.

NBC DFW posted a “tweet” to the social media site Twitter stating: “Plain Clothes Man at #Ebola Scene Perplexes Viewers,” followed by a link to the footage. Upon watching the clip, many other Twitter users began to re-tweet the link, sparking massive outrage over a crisis that is continuing to escalate due to failed protocols and careless bungling by health authorities.

“The unidentified man stood very near another hazmat-suited worker and then took what appeared to be a container from one of the suited workers,” explains NBC DFW. “He placed it on the steps to the jet and walked out of view.”

“He then reappeared as one of the PPE-suited [Personal Protective Equipment] workers came off the plane with red hazmat bags. He took what appeared to be a not-yet-used red bag from the worker in protective gear, then handed it to the workers as they bagged up items from the ambulance ride.”

Mystery man wore plain clothes because hazmat suits limit senses, say authorities

The presence of the plainclothes man was not an accident, according to Phoenix Air. It is part of the standard protocol, stated a Phoenix Air spokesman, to have one unsuited person present to give instructions and guide the other hazmat workers as they perform their duties.

“Our medical professionals in the biohazard suits have limited vision and mobility and it is the protocol supervisor’s job to watch each person carefully and give them verbal directions to ensure no close contact protocols are violated,” the spokesman stated to ABC News.

“There is absolutely no problem with this and in fact ensures an even higher level of safety for all involved.”

Adding to this, the airline claims that, if everyone was forced to wear hazmat suits, it would be difficult to see and hear what is going on in the midst of a transport. The man, says Phoenix Air, had been trained in how to keep a safe distance from the patient and was somehow protected from all the others during flight, though the logic of this seem to leave more questions than answers.

“She’s in a bubble,” reassured Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins, as quoted by MyFoxCarolinas.com, concerning Amber Vinson, the patient being transported to Atlanta.

“They’re in a bubble to put her in a bubble and then they stay in their bubbles in case they have to work on her bubble. Who that guy is and what he’s doing, I’m assuming he’s well away from the action.”

However, the possibility of contamination from the outside of the others’ hazmat suits as they entered the plane was not addressed by the judge, nor by Phoenix Air or anyone else. It is still possible that the plainclothes man may have encountered fluid or other contaminants while entering the plane and during flight, despite the use of protective “bubbles.”
