Ebola… and what is WRONG with the CDC???

Mr. President:
I am a resident of a suburb of Cleveland, Ohio… and what has happened today with a new Ebola patient Amber Vinson has me angry, angry, ANGRY at how the CDC is handling this!!!
WHY aren't there CDC MANDATORY restrictions IN PLACE already for nurses (& doctors) who have treated an ebola patient in traveling? Is the CDC just "trusting" that every exposed person will will be cautious and truthful? Seriously….WHAT IS WRONG WITH THEM???
WHAT is the CDC doing if Amber Vinson used a dollar bill in a vending machine at the airport? Does the CDC even THINK of this??? What if she ate at a local restaurant, or one at the airport…. does it contaminate all of the other dining utensils there? Does the CDC even ASK these questions??? What if she dropped a quarter on the floor of the airport, and A CHILD picked it up? Does it then contaminate the child who picks it up?
There should be someone from the CDC EDUCATING healthcare workers, and supplying local hospitals for this epidemic. I worked as a hospital secretary years ago… and even I know that you have to consider EVERYTHING when dealing with LESS deadly diseases. They should be thinking about these things and ANTICIPATING them… NOT waiting till they happen, and THEN reacting!
You need to DO something about this! The CDC needs to ANTICIPATE the worst case senerio, and set a plan in place BEFORE they happen.
Seriously...WHAT is WRONG with them???

I agree with this level of preparation suggested in this letter to the President
