Someone in Dallas definitely has the Ebola virus. This is according to officials with the Center for Disease Control.
The unnamed patient had been to West Africa and was exhibiting the kinds of symptoms that someone with Ebola normally has.
Last night, Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas released the following statement:
“Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas has admitted a patient into strict isolation to be evaluated for potential Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) based on the patient’s symptoms and recent travel history. The hospital is following all Centers for Disease Control and Texas Department of Heath recommendations to ensure the safety of patients, hospital staff, volunteers, physicians and visitors. The CDC anticipates preliminary results tomorrow (Wednesday).”
What do you think? Is this an isolated case? Or will a number of Americans end up contracting Ebola?
