Does the government know something we don’t?
President Barack Obama issued a memo Thursday “authorizing the exercise of authority under Public Law 85-804 […] holding harmless and indemnifying contractors with respect to claims, losses, or damage arising out of or resulting from exposure, in the course of performance of the contracts, to Ebola.”
In laymen’s terms, if a contractor, working in Ebola stricken regions of the world, happens to fail protocol, whether accidentally or on purpose, infecting the general populace of the U.S., there will be no repercussions, as immunity has been officially granted at the White House level.
“In other words, if a Company A employee contracts Ebola while working in West Africa, brings the disease back to the United States, is not quarantined and ends up infecting members of the general public, Company A is protected from any damages arising from lawsuits by these secondary victims.”, CNS News reports.
