    Oh my......now another in the US. Four hrs ago.


    Patient with Ebola symptoms enters Washington hospital.....


    A patient with symptoms that could be associated with the deadly Ebola virus and a recent travel history to Nigeria was admitted Friday to a Washington-area hospital, a spokeswoman told AFP. We can confirm that a patient ​has been admitted to Howard University Hospital in stable condition, following travel to Nigeria and presenting with symptoms that could be associated with Ebola," said Howard University spokeswoman Kerry-Ann Hamilton.

    "In an abundance of caution, we have activated the appropriate infection control protocols, including isolating the patient." No further details were released about the patient....snip~

    It could also be influenza, as the majority of these "ebola symptoms" actually have.

    Don't freak out about everyone who gets the flu. That's what the media wants you to do.

Hell, almost 5% of the population today either has HIV/AIDS.

    As far as the nurses go, look, it's just cause this is the new flashy disease, and they've been listening to the hype and are of course scared of it. Nurses are already trained on how to take care of patients with AIDS; if you take the precautions as normal then your fine. Let me say it this way; you cannot catch Ebola simply by being in the same room as someone with it.

    Yeah, well whats one suppose to say when Nurses are reporting some hospitals don't even have enough protective gear.

    Your approach will make problems here more likely. Not less.
    Ebola has "burned out in Africa" many times, dating back to the 1970s. There have been dozens of outbreaks over the years, that have died down after a period of time.
    It's not progress to spread it to other countries though, that have never had it before.

    Obama is responsible for his appointments. He is tasked with appointing competent people, you would think he would have gotten lucky by now and appointed someone who knew what the hell they were doing.

    Like the Kevin Bacon six degrees of separation game, rightwingers are always two steps away from blaming Obama for any problem, in this case a viral outbreak in West Africa. Perfect rightwingery.

    Oh I am sure they do.....as I am sure there is a Bio hazard bag for them to dump their stuff in. Do you think they wore masks when the guys was sneezing, or coughing or vomiting?

    Do you think they knew to disinfect the Ambulance for any other patients they picked up?
