Quickly Noted: TB in the Skies

January 13, 2010

Well, apparently active TB on a plane has happened again.

We’ve talked about this before. Here, about the Andrew Speaker incident. And here, about the CDCs “Do Not Board” list, which apparently doesn’t work.

My favorite part of this episode? This quote, by DGMQ head, Dr. Martin Cetrone:

I think the public health side of this equation functioned.

More appropriately, Dr. Cetrone, CDC did what they were bound to do. The fact of the matter is that the public health side of this equation failed. Ultimately, the goal was not achieved.
