Springfield doctor Gil Mobley donned a protective suit at the Atlanta airport today to protest how federal health authorities are handling the threat of Ebola.
Mobley said today that his protective gear was taken away in Atlanta after he boarded the Delta flight. He said he had taken off the protective gear — space suit coveralls, hood mask, goggles, gloves and boots with “CDC is Lying written on the back of the overalls — once he reached the gate.
“They gave me the option of confiscating my equipment or not flying,” Mobley said.
Mobley’s flight comes two days after a man in Texas was diagnosed with Ebola. Mobley said the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is sugarcoating the threat of Ebola in the United States.
“With 10,000 people flying out if west Africa daily its only a matter of time until all corners of the world are exposed,” Mobley said. “Once it devours third world countries, the US will be importing these cases daily. Eventually the clusters will overwhelm even the most advanced countries’ ability to isolate and quarantine all those exposed. The CDC needs to be honest with us. “
How long will American stay silent? How long before America holds their elected officials responsible for this deliberate behaviour?
