This is inside information passed on to me. Not a lot of detail, and I don't expect more inside information until Mon-Tue, but good for a small glimpse into response regardless of outcome.

Sherman Hospital has a potential Ebola case. The patient was in Nigeria within the past 10 days. Came in with weakness, fatigue & low-grade fever. They are wearing full contact and respiratory gear - beyond current protocols, as they believe the virus is more transmissible than CDC (publicly) believes.

CDC has told them 3 days for test results. They expect to know sooner.

Currently working on patient contact list.

I don't know any more than that, but will update with any further information that comes in. I'm hoping this will be an exercise in learning more about the process and what is happening vs what we see in news reports (or lack of.) If it is the Big E, we're prepared for 3 months of lockdown.

If that does come to pass, I'll post some of the rice-based recipes we'll be coming up with out of food boredom, while watching The Walking Dead on Netflix.

Keep us updated please.
Also, any official info would be good too.

That's about a hundred miles from me. Something might turn up on the local news. I'll keep an eye out.

10 miles and 1 degree of separation from me. What I would be really interested in, in the meantime, is how many entries to the US from affected nations we're having compared to the norm. Maybe any differences aren't even statistically measurable, though if they are, I'd lean more toward suspecting the "healthcare travel" many of us believe is going on

That's about 300 miles north of me. Guess we'll see if dung really does roll downhill.

Thankyou for posting this. I think there's more cases/possible cases that they do not report on. S + F, sometimes this information is preferable to the MSM.

Hope you throw in some beans and cornmeal recipes. It would appear you have a friend on site of the situation. I'll take you at your word since the origination of the information is where MSM will get their info. Thanks for the head up. S&F

Not more than 300 miles from my neighborhood. I'm certain we'll see a good many of these "possible" cases through the next week or so. Just hope the possibles don't obfuscate the reals.

I do have a friend onsite (was, shift is over) - he wasn't involved with the patient but is part of the ER, which is why I'm really interested in monitoring the direct info compared to MSM reporting - figuring we can extrapolate those results to the larger whole.

Since the Obama Administration carted sick illegals all over the US, it wouldn't surprise me if they were flying people in from Liberia and Sierra Leone.

Nigeria was cleared of Ebola over 2 weeks ago.


If the person was from Liberia... I would worry a little.

I had thought the same thing without having looked it up specifically. Nonetheless, their protocols include Nigeria as a red flag.

Not to mention, also just a couple weeks ago Thomas Duncan was cleared to fly openly with 250+ other passengers into DFW. I don't think 2 weeks is safe to say anything when it comes to what authorities don't know when it comes to Ebola.

I'm not trying to fear monger, but I'm certainly staying on my toes with this one. It's not like H5N1 or H1N1, where if it hits, there's a tiny chance you'll know someone who knows someone who dies. The consequences for assumptions and optimism could be life or death.

Elgin, Illinois is a northern shythole. Next to Rockford, it is ties for the 2nd murder capital in the state (the first being Chicago).

If this cat does have Ebola, they are nicely strategically (TPTB) putting people in areas that are by major city hubs. Mostly rich or well to doers live going up from Lake County in Elgin. Spreading into Chicago via the Blue Line at Rosemont would be ideal.

Interesting. I don't live in Elgin, but I've lived close to it most of my life. There's a few "bad areas", but ask statistics I can find point to below average violent crime, and above average household income, home values, etc. I'm guessing if it really is 2nd in murders, that mostly has to do with it being among the largest towns in Illinois.

As far as cases being near city centers, that's where most of the international airports and travelers are.

Thanks for sharing.

However, influenza season is early this year. We've had patients positive for two different stains already, in September.

I wonder how long this person has been in the country and why the heck they keep letting them in.

I'm at a loss on that. My only guess is the PTB REALLY want an epidemic in the US. Wipe out a ton off people, crash the dollar, etc.

Two birds, one stone...

Until (if) it does get ugly with Ebola, I know that's what ER workers are truly dreading - the flood of panicked ER visits because people have a little cough and a 99.4 fever (flu, etc.)

Tis the season I try harder than normal to avoid injuries. Sitting in an ER waiting room with a bunch of sick people for 6 hours isn't my cup of tea!
