DALLAS, TX – The second Nurse who tested positive for Ebola is being treated at Atlanta’s Emory University Hospital. But, it’s what happened on the way there that has taken the internet by storm.

Video of Amber Vinson boarding a special flight bound for Georgia Wednesday contains something out of the ordinary. The man with the clipboard is the only person not wearing protective clothing.

Four health care workers in hazmat suits assisted Vinson, in the yellow suit, on the plane. The response was quick on social media, with some dubbing the man “unprotected clipboard dude.”

For the record, the CDC says Ebola is not airborne. The New York Daily News says the man is a medical protocol supervisor with Phoenix Air, the medical airline.
