Good News: CDC Issues Ebola Guidelines for U.S. Funeral Homes

Posted by on Sep 30, 2014 at 7:32 pm

Move along, nothing to be concerned about, Barack Obama’s on the case.

CBS46 News has confirmed the Centers for Disease Control has issued guidelines to U.S. funeral homes on how to handle the remains of Ebola patients. If the outbreak of the potentially deadly virus is in West Africa, why are funeral homes in America being given guidelines?

The three-page list of recommendations include instructing funeral workers to wear protective equipment when dealing with the remains since Ebola can be transmitted in postmortem care. It also instructs to avoid autopsies and embalming.

Georgia is comprised of 700 funeral homes and 2,000 funeral directors.

CBS46 asked English if Georgians should be alarmed by these guidelines.

“Absolutely not. In fact, if they weren’t hearing about it, they should be a whole lot more concerned,” said English.

Doesn’t quite inspire confidence. And if Ebola isn’t enough to worry about

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really something that I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I will
    try to get the hang of it!

    Chicago Jesus will smite the virus with his magic scepter and it will only hit whitey cracker peckerwoods and tea party terrorists, not true believer Kool-Aid comrades.
