Not sure where this belongs. Sure as hell isn't a Lounge topic.

During the most recent outbreak of the Ebola virus, more than 500 health care workers died of the disease, and something called Personal Protective Equipment became essential to preventing the deaths of even more. We're talking about gowns, gloves, masks and other gear designed to block the transmission of deadly bacteria and viruses. They're used every day in hospitals to protect doctors, nurses, and patients. But Ebola was so lethal, it raised the stakes enormously. If the protective equipment fails, infectious bodily fluids can get through -- a problem known as "strike-through." At the height of the Ebola outbreak, we received a tip that a major American manufacturer had knowingly provided defective protective equipment to health care workers in the U.S. and abroad. It's a serious accusation that's never been publicly examined.

Stay safe out there folks.
