Lawmaker: Plans to treat foreign patients in U.S.

28 Oct, 2014

House Judiciary Committee leader Rep. Goodlatte, R-Va., says his office has received ‘information from within the administration’ that the plans are being developed to treat non-U.S. citizens for treatment within the early days of developing the illness. Goodlatte:

This is simply a matter of common sense that if you are concerned about this problem spreading — and this is a deadly disease that we’re even concerned about the great health care workers when they come back not spreading it — we certainly shouldn’t be bringing in the patients.

He doesn’t specify who would pay for the treatment, whether the plan would involve non-U.S. residents, or other details.
