After the first case of Ebola was diagnosed in the US, doctors say they don't want to take any risks even though the two patients in Kentucky tested negative for the infection.


Two Patients Quarantined In Kentucky With Ebola-Like Symptoms

This is from a local news source for me. It seems that fears of Ebola spreading across the United States is definitely stepping up. Considering how now eighty people are suspected to have been in contact with the man in Texas, it wouldn't surprise me if more people are quarantined across the country for Ebola like symptoms.

Stock up on supplies people. Food, water, meds, ammo, everything. I have a hunch we're in for a bumpy ride.

No doubt. I wanted to know if it was the University of Kentucky or Louisville, but LEX 18 dropped the ball when putting together this article.

Per the comment section in the article it appears that they did not test positive. I too live to close for comfort if this does turn out to be ebola. I have not heard anything in the local news.

I did a search, and being at work, Facebook is blocked. But I'm seeing a couple of hints saying that this is at the University of Kentucky. Even though they tested negative, it is still nerve racking. I'm curious as to the accuracy rates of the test.

I'm also curious as to what is going to happen this winter with people showing up to the ER's and UTC's with flu like symptoms. Are they going to quarantine everyone?

Oh well...too late to quarantine Texas now, I suppose.

You're going to see more of this. When people become afraid they panic. A simple cold or upset stomach becomes Ebola and the hospitals have to take it seriously.

Are hospitals that are testing these people for it, asking questions before they do? Like have these people been to the region, ect? Before they test for it?

I would just hope that they aren't testing everyone willy nilly, because it seems like the labs would get backed up in a big hurry, which could cause all kinds of problems.

This is what im worried about, even if they didnt have Ebola, word spreads very fast, and so does panic. There could be and probably will be a run on food, stalk up now. 1 box or 12 packages of roman noodles, only $1.89 a box at walmart.

No idea. I'm hoping some more information gets released. Such as if they've been to the region, had contact with the guy from Texas, etc. But the information just isn't there. I doubt it's really Ebola, but being how it's went from one person, to potentially 20+, to 80+, one can never know. I'm pretty sure Bluegrass Regional Airport connects to Dallas.

Agreed... would be helpful to know their risk factors. Like, have they traveled to West Africa? What exactly do are their "Ebola-like symptoms?" Because fever and intestinal issues are symptoms early on, but could also just be flu or stomach bug.

They tested "negative" so what made them decide to quarantine?

Sure questionnaires such as Have you or anyone you are in close contact with been to Dallas or any of the surrounding areas? Have you flown recently on any major airlines?

I think that article is going to be part of the deflection spin... LOOK over there!!! All the while the truth continues to spread in deadly silence.

I was thinking along the same lines too about what would be the guidelines for putting one under quarantine. I keep remembering a thread that I read on ATS awhile back talking about the government stockpiling body bags, ammo and such. Is this what they were preparing for? This Ebola and the unknown mysterious illness effecting children throughout the United States related in anyway? I have so many questions and there does not seem to be any answers.

It appears that the Ebola test has a very high rate of false negatives, especially preceding and during the onset of symptoms. Essentially, they have to keep testing daily until it comes up positive or the person recovers.

As to the reason for why they were placed into quarantine, we don't know yet, but it is likely because of their travel history or presumed contact with an infected person.

Long time ATS reader but first time posting. After reading this, I freaked out because it is VERY close to home. My wife is a nurse and works at a hospital around there(So worried about her working in hospitals ATM.). I called and asked if she has heard anything about this as she has friends that work in many different hospitals and no news about it so far! If I hear anything though, I will post here ASAP!

No one will test positive during the incubation period which is between 2-21 days. www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov...
