(WXIA) – He’s been dubbed “Clipboard Guy”, the man that stood, without protective gear, amazingly close to Ebola patient Amber Vinson as she was being transported to Atlanta’s Emory Hospital.
His presence drew a lot of attention, and sparked a lot of rumors and conspiracy theories, but experts say there’s a simple explanation.
He’s a part of the transport team called the Medical Safety Coordinator.
“There are loud jet engines starting up. There maybe propellers spinning around. There may be various ramp people driving tugs. Baggage carts around. You need one member of the medical team to be the eyes and ears of the group,” explains pilot Randy Davis.
