The CDC is Fundamentally Broken

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is a fundamentally broken organization and plans should be underway now for the replacement of its Director and any other senior leadership involved in decision making during the response to Ebola in the United States thus far.

The abject incompetence evident in the non-response to the first confirmed Ebola victim in the United States has exposed the absence of capability and adequate planning to deal with a contagious and deadly disease of any variety.

As a result of the CDC’s ineptitude and inaction, 2 nurses have contracted the disease and hundreds have been unwittingly exposed.

The nature of this inaction and lack of awareness betrays fundamental and inherent flaws in the CDC and its leadership. This inaction is so profound, it cannot be fixed while maintaining current leadership. A lack of planning and subsequent scenario management shows that new leadership at the CDC, or a new entity entirely ought to lead the charge against any future incidents of Ebola within the United States.
