Minnesota Author/Physician Shares His Thoughts on the Ebola Crisis with National Radio Audiences

Tom Combs head shot - tjc   When Ebola showed up in America, Dr. Tom Combs, author of the medical thriller Nerve Damage, felt compelled to talk about the effort to stop its spread. He spent 20 plus years working as an emergency room physician and personally dealt with the protocols involving AIDS and SARS.

  In light of the recent news about another case of an infected individual bringing the disease to Amerca, Dr. Combs is renewing the call for an immediate quarantine and travel ban to and from West Africa. On Friday morning, Oct. 24, Dr. Combs will be interviewsd again on Wall Street Journal This Morning, a nationally syndicated radio show. He is scheduled to be on around 6:35 a.m. ET.  

   Dr. Combs has already done a number of radio interviews, earlier in the month. He was interviewed on Wall Street Journal This Morning (Oct. 13),  WSYR-Radio in Syracuse (Oct. 13), WCCO Radio in Minneapolis with personalities Esme Murphy (Oct. 10) and Roshini Radjukmar (Oct. 12) and on Power Talk 1210 in Tucson, Ariz (Oct. 14). He has interviews pending on WDUN-AM in Atlanta and WIBC-Radio in Indianapolis, and a story has been published in the MN Sun newspaper.

   During his interviews, Dr. Combs has discussed how hospitals across the country are likely preparing for the possible arrival of Ebola in their emergency rooms. He is also shedding light on what it's like to work in an E.R., and the challenges faced there.

   Regarding the American healthcare worker in Dallas who is now infected with the disease he says, "The nurse would not be infected if an appropriate quarantine/flight restriction had been in place. I can not understand why an aggressive, medically sound quarantine has not been enacted. Containment is the mandatory first step to prevent spread of thee infection. No potentially infected individual should fly out of W. Africa to anywhere. What has happened is tragic."

   Dr. Combs' novel, Nerve Damage, is a suspense/thriller involving an emergency physician on the front lines. Learn more about Dr. Combs' novel at www.tom-combs.com.
