Two Americans stricken with ebola

Update: a few reports are saying Ebola could be airborne. This article was published a few years back by the BBC with evidence that it can pass “by air”

Two Americans stricken with Ebola

It is officially  confirmed that 2 patients in Africa who are stricken with the deadly Ebola virus are being flown back the USA.

From the article:

Two doctors said to me this evening that  it reminded them of the Walking Dead” (The TV show filmed in Atlanta area) Funny, because I thought the same thing 🙁

My thoughts go out to all the residents in that area (we’re not far away the neighboring state of Florida) Also heart goes out the patients and their families.

From the article:

“Emory University Hospital has a specially built isolation unit set up in collaboration with the CDC to treat patients who are exposed to certain serious infectious diseases,” hospital officials said. “It is physically separate from other patient areas and has unique equipment and infrastructure that provide an extraordinarily high level of clinical isolation. It is one of only four such facilities in the country.”

“Emory University Hospital physicians, nurses and staff are highly trained in the specific and unique protocols and procedures necessary to treat and care for this type of patient. For this specially trained staff, these procedures are practiced on a regular basis throughout the year so we are fully prepared for this type of situation.”

We will continue to update you and bring you the latest on the situation.
