In mid-September, Dr. Lisa Brosseau and Dr. Rachael Jones wrote a commentary for CIDRAP News, a service of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and policy at the University of Minnesota, titled “Health Workers need optimal respiratory protection for Ebola.”
Brosseau and Jones are professors in the School of Public Health, Division of Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences at the University of Illinois, Chicago.
Their article was picked up by some right-wing bloggers, who exaggerated and misattributed some of its contents, adding fuel to the fire of sensationalistic media coverage of the current Ebola outbreak, as well as to the politicization of the issue during this campaign season. 22:38 minutes (20.73 MB)
