Ebola: Unidentified man not wearing protective suit escorts disease patient

Mouths were left ajar when a footage showed a man – not wearing protective gear – was escorting the second American Ebola patient – nurse Amber Vinson – as she was being transferred to Emory University Hospital, Atlanta, yesterday (October 15).

The airline company transferring the patient told ABC News that the man was a medical protocol supervisor who was not wearing protective gear on purpose “for a higher level of safety.”

Social media has dubbed the man ‘clipboard dude’ as he was holding a clipboard while directed the transfer.
