In view of this and the demands from many Americans and organizations, especially after two Dallas nurses contracted the disease, the CDC has provided stricter rules for the care of contagious disease patients.

In addition, there will be a backup person, called a site manager who will coordinate and supervise the dressing of the body garb as well as its removal.
