Are people making too much over the threat of Ebola in the United States? State and National health care officials are urging the public to calm down when it comes to the threat of Ebola. Medical Director for the state Department of Health and Hospitals, Dr. Frank Welch, says people aren’t concerned for “no reason” but it’s over the top to think that you’re going to walk outside and contract Ebola. He says, on the other hand, this is a huge wake up call for our health care system to keep their workers safe. Welch wants to emphasize that Louisiana has been intensively preparing for the possibility of an Ebola patient entering the health care system here at any level.

 

Insurance Commissioner Jim Donelon says auto theft in Louisiana has dropped 48% since 2007 which beats the national average of 34% in the same time period. Donelon credits the massive decline, in part, to public outreach and initiatives by law enforcement.

He says also says technology has improved so that law enforcement now has the ability to read license plates as vehicles drive down the street. That alone  has resulted in hundreds of apprehensions
