Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams is sponsoring a town hall on Ebola and Enterovirus D68 on Wednesday, Oct. 22 at 6 p.m. in the courtroom of Brooklyn Borough Hall in Downtown Brooklyn.

The BP seeks to ease the fears over the outbreaks and supply facts to the community.

Panelists at the town hall, which will be moderated by Professor Mordecai Goldfeder, senior health and medical planner at the New York City Office of Emergency Management (OEM), will include experts from the Brooklyn Hospital Center, Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Doctors Council SEIU, New York City Health and Hospitals Corporation, and New York City Department of Mental Health and Hygiene.

No word on whether Brooklyn's ER crisis will be addressed.

These disaster recovery conferences and epidemic forums brought to you by Brooklyn Borough President, Eric Adams. The same Eric Adams, who, when he was NYS Senator Eric Adams voted to shut down LICH. Yeah, we know you have our back.

Brooklyn Hospital Center, the "expert" at the Ebola town hall, doesn't have enough room to hold their current patients. Ebola? Nurses have to scrounge around on other floors for basic equipment like IV tubes right now, with no Ebola. The floors in the admitted rooms are filthy. They don't have the staff to mop.

Adams, Becker, Cuomo -- think they'll go to Brooklyn Hospital Center if they get Ebola?
