NEW YORK, Oct. 15 (UPI) -- Stacey Dash shared her thoughts on how to deal with the Ebola virus that has left one person dead and two infected in the United States by proposing the creation of Ebola quarantine 'centers' in every city.
While speaking on her Fox News talk show, Outnumbered, on Monday, Dash said that the government "shouldn't be letting people go into regular hospitals, where [Ebola] could be spread."
"I just think that for this specific disease, we should have a special facility with specially trained people," she added. "In each city. That way it's not spread, and when the person walks in, they know what they're looking for, they know if they find it, they know how to contain it. And they know how not to infect themselves."
Before making her suggestion, Dash's co-panelist Harris Faulkner said the U.S. was in need of a surgeon general to handle the Ebola situation.
"We need a pinpoint person," she said. "Look, from both sides of the political aisle this weekend, they started saying, where is this person?"
The panelists comments came a day before the Dallas nurse who contracted the disease while caring for Liberian Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan was identified as Nina Pham. The woman is the first person to contract Ebola in the U.S. Duncan, the first person ever diagnosed with the virus in the country died in a Dallas hospital on Oct. 8.
On Wednesday a second healthcare worker tested positive for Ebola in Dallas.
