Whatever is happening the CDC is trying to CYA because they say they don’t know how the disease was transmitted. Making a statement before it is known is just stupid. We don’t know what happened but we know it’s not our fault.
We do know the 2nd patient was in full PPE. She probably was not acting directly with the patient from what is being said and they refuse to comment on what job she performed. This is going to come out eventually in a leak.
