WASHINGTON (WNB) - Newly instituted Ebola czar Ron Klain on Friday called for 'segregated, safeguarded Ebola sections' on all commercial flights from high-risk countries.
The former White House advisor's first action appears to be an administration attempt to placate the American public who overwhelmingly want the flights stopped, while still honoring President Obama's insistance they continue.
"These planes would have a third class if you will - an Ebola class for anyone deemed high-risk because of symptoms or origin. This section would be enclosed with plastic, have its own air purifier, designated restroom, and hazmat-wearing flight attendants - the other passengers would be almost totally safe," said Klain.
President Obama applauded the proposal by calling it 'the best of all worlds' and encouraged airlines to immediately retrofit aircraft used on the routes in question.
