Records show Wisconsin health officials waited several months to announce an outbreak of a rare bloodstream infection to the public.
Gov. Scott Walker said when it became clear health officials couldn't find the source of the outbreak on their own, they went to the public. The department said it wanted to avoid inspiring fear among the public.
Like Walker and Republicans never did to inspire fear of terrorism, left wing socialist anti-American protesters, voter fraud, and killer drug dealing immigrants?
WBAY-TV obtained the records under an open records request. The station reported Friday the Wisconsin Department of Health Services began investigating the outbreak of the bacteria known as Elizabethkingia in December. but waited to announce it to the public in March. Eighteen deaths have been linked to the outbreak in Wisconsin.And maybe if someone knew about it we'd know more about what caused the outbreak?
