The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued new guidelines on Monday for health care workers caring for patients with Ebola.
The new guidelines "provide an increased margin of safety," CDC Director Tom Frieden said in a conference call with reporters.
Frieden added that they represented a "consensus" by the health care workers who have treated people with Ebola in the United States, including those workers at hospitals in Atlanta and Nebraska that have treated Ebola without further transmission.
The CDC is, of course, reacting to what happened at Presbyterian Hospital Dallas, where two nurses caring for Thomas Eric Duncan, the first person diagnosed with Ebola in the United States, contracted the virus.
"The [old] guidelines didn't work for that hospital," Frieden said.
Because of the lessons learned, the CDC said it was implementing three new recommendations:
— First, they will make sure that health care workers dealing with Ebola patients are "repeatedly trained," especially when it comes to learning how to put on and take off their personal protective equipment.
— Second, the equipment used should leave no skin exposed.
— Third, these regulations should be monitored by a "trained observer" or site manager, who watches each employee take on and off their personal protective equipment.
"All patients treated at Emory University Hospital, Nebraska Medical Center and the NIH Clinical Center have followed the three principles," the CDC said in a press release. "None of the workers at these facilities have contracted the illness."
Frieden was asked how these guidelines differed from the ones set out by Doctors Without Borders, which has been treating patients with Ebola in West Africa
Frieden said for the most part, they are identical, except in areas that are difficult to translate.
For example, he said, Doctors without Borders asks health care workers to be sprayed down with a bleach solution over a gravel pit. That is hard to do in an American hospital, said Frieden, so the CDC calls for American workers to wipe down their personal protective equipment with a virucidal wipe before taking it off.
Alabama House Speaker Mike Hubbard has been arrested
Alabama House Speaker Mike Hubbard has been arrested on felony ethics charges, accused of using public office for personal gain. Hubbard was indicted by a grand jury on 23 charges accusing him of misusing his office as speaker and his previous post as chairman of the Alabama Republican Party.
Acting Attorney General Van Davis announced the indictment Monday.
Hubbard says the charges, weeks before the November vote in which he's favored for re-election, constitute "a political witch hunt."
If convicted, Hubbard faces from two to 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $300,000 on each count.
Alabama House Speaker Mike Hubbard's lawyer says they will 'fire back' at corruption charges, hold a press conference on Tuesday

Hannah Graham Case Suspect Jesse Matthew Charged in 2005 Sex Attack. That crime has been linked by DNA to the slaying of yet another woman in Virginia. Jesse Matthew is charged with attempted capital murder and abduction in an indictment obtained.

Safety regulators are warning owners of more than 4.7 million vehicles that have been recalled for air bag problems to get them repaired now.
Inflators can rupture in air bags made by Takata Corp., causing metal fragments to fly out when the bags are inflated in crashes. So far, automakers have recalled about 12 million vehicles worldwide because of the problem. Safety advocates estimate that more than 20 million cars have the faulty inflators in the U.S. alone. They say at least four people have died from the problem. The inflators have led to multiple recalls from Honda, Toyota, Nissan, Mazda, General Motors, Ford, Chrysler, BMW and Mitsubishi.

The following shock wave reportedly blew out windows several kilometers away and damaged a fancy stadium for a local football team. According to a statement from the city council, some neighborhoods saw whole window frames knocked out by the blast.
