The people who need them will be issued them.
I love the smell of face-palm in the morning!
"You ain't no Muslim bruv!"
First, let's docvument the lie in your OP. Here is the quote in your OP:
Now let's look at his actual words:troops from the 101st Airborne Division leading the military response to Ebola in West Africa will only need gloves and masks to protect themselves from the deadly virus, so said Gen. David Rodriguez at a Pentagon briefing Wednesday.
Notice the "majority of". That is alot different from all. If you are building a ETU, you don't need more than gloves. If however, you are going to be dealing with patients or tissue samples:Q: And the personal protective gear?
GEN. RODRIGUEZ: The personal protective gear, the majority of the people will just deploy with personal protective gear that includes gloves and masks and things like that. They don't need the whole suit, as such, because they're not going to be in contact with any of the people.
And:And last, we have sufficient personal protective equipment for ourselves, and we will continue to make sure that that's the way throughout the process.
So anyway, yeah, most of them will not need full suits, but some will, and they have enough, and are highly trained and experienced in working in NBC contaminated environments.GEN. RODRIGUEZ: The lab -- the labs are a separate specialty element of the force. So that's -- that's probably where that has come. As far as the general population, they won't be coming in contact. These are -- like I said, these labs are trained to a specialty skill -- level four, it's called -- but the bottom line, it's the highest level. I mean, they can operate in a nuclear, biological and chemical environment. They are specifically trained to do that, and that's their primary skill set, OK?
And we had one in there that has been operating for several years in the country that works on infectious diseases. We have the -- both the Navy and the Army have medical labs in many countries doing just that, to monitor these things. OK?
And then there is this: Soldiers briefed, trained for tough Ebola mission
So not just do they have enough, every one is getting trained in their use.Following the briefing, there was extensive training on how to wear the protective gear – protective masks, boots, gloves (two pairs minimum and three pairs recommended) and Tyvex suits.
Every soldier was required to don the gear and go through the decontamination process, aided by West Virginia Army National Guard full-time personnel of the 35th CST (Civil Support Team) and CERFP (Chemical, Biological, Radiological, High-Explosive Emergency Response Force Package) personnel.
The equipment displayed on Thursday will likely be part of the package that goes with the 101st, although a much simpler decontamination set-up can also be made using standard cleaning supplies like bleach and other items the Liberians will find easier to procure.
The 35th CST isn't the 101st Airborne...another lie. In case you didn't notice, the the thread topic is about the 101st Airborne. Those are two different units. Do you understand the difference?
You did an awesome job at lieing!
