Now that Ebola is infecting people in the United States, many people are panicking and wondering what our country will do if there is an outbreak.
While the CDC has assured everyone that an outbreak the size of that in West Africa is not going to happen in the United States, many people are still wondering how an outbreak of any size will be handled.
Stacey Dash may not be an expert on the topic of Ebola, but she did offer a smart solution to help reduce worry and prevent the spread of Ebola if an outbreak does occur.
“I think they should set up special centers for just Ebola in each state,” said Dash, who co-hosted the show Outnumbered with Harris Faulkner. “They shouldn’t be letting people go into regular hospitals, where it could be spread.”
“I just think that for this specific disease, we should have a special facility with specially trained people,” she added. “In each city. That way it’s not spread, and when the person walks in, they know what they’re looking for, they know if they find it, they know how to contain it. And they know how not to infect themselves.”

While the CDC is saying that Ebola can and will be contained to ensure that there is not a large outbreak in the United States, many people are questioning the protocols in place.
Two nurses who were treating the first Ebola patient in the United States contracted the disease while treating the patient and several other people throughout the country are being quarantined and tested for the deadly virus as well.
Dash’s cohost on the show, Harris Faulkner, agreed with the idea and said that he believes things would go a lot more smoothly and people would feel better if we had a Surgeon General to help set some rules and regulations for treating the virus.
