ebola-bed Louisiana Southwest State Representatives are speaking out about a recent news report that Louisiana would host Ebola-related incinerated waste from the Dallas dwellings.

 

Here is a statement from Louisiana state representatives from the related region:

“A basic function of government and of this legislature is to protect the citizens of Louisiana from foreseeable harm due to infectious disease. We wholeheartedly support the efforts of the Louisiana Attorney General in his attempt to prevent the transportation to Louisiana of potentially hazardous waste removed from a deceased Ebola infected patient’s dwelling.  The Ebola virus and outbreak is a new threat with many unknowns, including the possible risks of waste disposal.  It has become clear that this virus poses potential risks that require extreme care, a high level of training, constant supervision and extremely careful handling. We should move slowly and carefully to understand all the risks before transporting this material to a Louisiana landfill for disposal.”
