Saudi Arabia is testing a man for suspected Ebola infection after he returned recently from a business trip to Sierra Leone, the Health Ministry said on Tuesday. It said the man, a Saudi in his 40s, was at a hospital in the Red Sea city of Jeddah after showing “symptoms of viral hemorrhagic fever,” which resemble symptoms of the Ebola virus. The ministry said it had taken precautionary measures, including isolating the patient at a specialist hospital and had sent blood samples to an international laboratory in coordination with the World Health Organization (WHO) for further checks.

The British Government needs to stop twating about and suspend travel to Liberia Guinea and Sierra Leone. I Know it will hurt there economy's but they had since February to take this seriously. It not worth the risk to our Airport staff and health workers.

Plus I like my cat 4 organisms in Africa


Sure I don't mind them evacuating British nationals who have got infected. But unrestricted travel now NO.

Health officials: 1 person who recently traveled to West Africa is being tested for Ebola virus in Columbus, Ohio - @10TV


There was a member earlier in the thread that said Docters Hospital in Columbus had a patient in isolation. Looks like they were right.

Same hospital? At least they have an isolation room. Not bsl4, but still.

As far as I am aware everything is being done exactly the same way as it was before? What makes you think it is different besides the fact more information is available from the Media about the second one. The pictures from the first transport show it to be identical...

I am pretty sure these people know what they are doing.

I remember his posts.

I think he had a family member or friend that worked at the hospital.

The following is from The Columbus Dispatch.


Columbus, state and federal health officials are investigating a possible case of Ebola in a woman being treated in a local hospital.

Columbus Public Health spokesman Jose Rodriguez said a 46-year-old woman who had traveled overseas presented with symptoms of the deadly disease.

Rodriquez said the woman is "doing well" and has been in the hospital for a few days. He would not say which hospital.


FOUND IT.

No, he said that a few days ago. This lady was admitted TODAY.

Rather disturbing turn of events, published 7 minutes ago:

news.yahoo.com...

Doesn't seem very sanitary to me..what's scary is how hard it is to track down people who were in contact with the people who keep showing up in these articles as having been "tested" - So, 8 people who were in contact with patient zero, well, who were THOSE 8 people in contact with that we don't know about?

I do not believe he ever gave the name of the hospital...I am going through his posts now. However, this lady seems to have been admitted this morning or last night. His claim was from days ago.

They also do not know if this lady has Ebola and this is a snip from the article.


A local woman is being tested for the Ebola virus after a recent trip to a foreign country...She is reportedly “doing well”


His claim was also that it had been CONFIRMED, and that they were positive it was Ebola. That guy was a liar.

Also:

abc6onyourside.com...-EMXPldVwg

UPDATE: SHE DID NOT HAVE EBOLA, SHE HAD THE FLU; TURNS OUT SHE WAS NEVER IN A COUNTRY WITH THE INFECTION. YES, SHE WAS IN WEST AFRICA, BUT NOT ONE OF THE COUNTRIES WITH EBOLA. SHE ALSO CAME BACK SEVERAL WEEKS AGO.

Apparently this lady went to the hospital on her own and told them she had ebola...

This is why we should just say screw it and cut travel.

If the ignorant people over there wont grow up and treat this seriously then I don't see why us in the west should risk our healthcare and Airport staff for them.

From the post right above yours:

Looking like the dude might not have been lying after all. And he was reporting what his MIL said, maybe she just overreacted to the symptoms. It isn't flu season, after all.

Second plane just landed....randomly got lucky and saw it fly over on approach to dobbins again.

WSB says police have told them they have not been asked to close off streets or provide an escort, expect to take same route, roads look clear as of now.

Thanks. I'm stuck at work...can't watch it live right now. If they even show it again, as it's become old hat.

You have luck!

Looks to me like Writebol was brought in on a stretcher. Both people pushing the stretcher were wearing hazmat suits with air scrubbers.

I would too.

It's probably not them. I'm really thinking they left them in Bangor. Or close to it.

Watching locally, an 11Alive reporter in ATL was quoting the Emory director when asked why use an ambulance and not a helicopter...he responded by saying that the helipad is on the 9th floor and to get the patient down so many floors to the quarantine unit provided more risks for contamination.

Okay....

So how is driving the patients through the city, stopping at red lights and wheeling up to an entrance with people milling about - not in suits - really any better?


Nothing about this makes senses to me.

Unless you get out your car, open the (hopefully locked) ambulance door climb and then roll in the bodly fluids of the patient then your not going to catch it! If you do that? Then you deserve all the Ebola you can get for being a idiot.

Ebola is not transferred by magic death rays its only transferred via bodily fluids. No bodily fluids no Ebola.

It was their mother in law, at Doctors Hospital.

Looking a bit further at research regarding transmisibility:


On the receiving end, NHPs are known to be susceptible to lethal EBOV infection through the respiratory tract24, 27, 31 putting the onus of the transmission on the ability of the source to shed infectious particles. Interestingly, infectious EBOV can also be found in significant amounts in the mucosa of the NHPs challenged through the airway24, 27. Eventually, it will be important to assess the possibility of transmission between mucosally infected NHPs and naïve animals.

That is what is different, raymond. I am not saying they do not know. I am saying they are breaking infection protocols that are taught AT LEAST as early as an AS nursing program. Now, after several days of people screaming about broken containment and security procedures, they pull their heads out if their nether regions and start to treat this bug with the respect that it deserves. That tells me two things. Either someone got a butt-chewing from those on high, OR now they are concerned about airborne or aerosolized transmission.

Yeah they were saying that the other day but only after the backtalk from people.

I can't watch right now. Was there more security on the road?

Also, weird isn't it how accurate their timetable was. Convenient for the terrists.

I don't think it was them. They're up north.

They're not sure it's not airborne, aerosolable, whatever they call it. Hence it's BSL-4 categorization.

Why can people, the ones here and on TV included, ever admit that there are some things WE JUST DO NOT KNOW?

Viruses are TRICKY. Then change morph mutate recombine and adapt. This one is showing differences already so NO ONE yet can say anything about it for SURE. It may already be reacting to secret squirrel serum they were given and adapting. WE DO NOT KNOW.

Educated guesses? Of course. Certainty? No way.

Did you not see the first guys in hazmat suits with air scrubbers? The only difference is the stretcher...
