I WONDER WHY: CDC Stockpiling Ebola Protective Gear

Well, that’s interesting. I wonder why they would be doing that…

(Reuters) – The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is increasing its national stockpile of protective gear for U.S. hospitals handling Ebola patients after a “sudden increase” in demand, the agency said on Friday.

The CDC has ordered $2.7 million in personal protective equipment that is being configured into 50 kits for rapid deployment to hospitals, it said in a statement.

Some U.S. orders of protective equipment have been backlogged amid growing domestic demand, as manufacturers prioritize a flood of requests from aid agencies trying to curb the outbreak in West Africa.
