Stacey Dash has a new plan to keep the United State’s Ebola outbreak to a minimum.
On Monday, while speaking on her Fox News talk show Outnumbered, the former Clueless star suggested that the United States build special Ebola quarantine centers in every city.
“I think they should set up special centers for just Ebola in each state,” Dash explained, adding that regular hospitals should not be accepting Ebola patients. “They shouldn’t be letting people go into regular hospitals where it could be spread,” she said.
“I just think that for this specific disease, we should have a special facility with specially trained people,” Dash said. “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.”
The panelists, which included Harris Faulkner, also suggested that it was time for the United States to appoint an official point person in the Surgeon General to handle the Ebola situation.
“I don’t care what party you are, you’ve got to get your stuff together,” Faulkner stated. “We need a surgeon general. We need a pinpoint person. Look, from both sides of the political aisle this weekend, they started saying, where is this person?”

The panelists’ comments come just a day after the Dallas nurse, who treated Thomas Eric Duncan, was identified as Nina Pham. She is the first person in the United States to contract the disease. On Wednesday, October 15, another Dallas nurse was confirmed to have contracted Ebola as well.
