Dr. John Carlo is withholding public health information about swine flu (Dallas County medical director)
Like everyone else, we urge you to wash your hands and engage in social distancing.
Unlike everyone else, we urge you to also help with this smart plan to get more tests, ventilators, and PPE. Everyone can do that plan right now, at home, in just 15 minutes.
If enough people help with the plan we can save lives. Take time out now and help get more desperately-needed supplies.
In other words, Carlo is withholding potentially vital information about the source of a potential public health emergency. If some or many of those who are infected in Dallas are visitors or illegal aliens from Mexico, the public has a right to know so that they can contact their elected officials and urge them to take action: greater inspection of those entering the U.S. or an increase in attempts to block illegal immigration. Being politically correct is more important to Carlo than giving citizens the information they need.
I contacted Dallas County Health & Human Services director Zachary Thompson and asked him to comment on the article; this was his only reply:
DCHHS has no comment on the article.
You can get his contact information at dallascounty.org/department/hhservices if you'd like to politely let him know what you think.
