Just breaking now:

CBC News


A person who recently returned to Canada from West Africa is in isolation at an Ottawa hospital with Ebola-like symptoms.

The patient arrived at The Ottawa Hospital's General campus on Sunday, Ottawa Public Health confirmed to CBC News on Monday.

The patient called the hospital beforehand to allow staff to prepare for the arrival, and special steps are being taken at the hospital to protect staff and other patients.

The person's age and gender are not being released


If there was one place to have it start in Canada, then Ottawa would be the place. Lots of travel to and from Western African countries.

More to come as the story develops.

Well ... kudos to the person for calling the hospital ahead of time and letting everyone get prepared and for going straight there. That's a heck of a lot better than that Dallas Deputy who gave no warning and went to a walk in clinic and then had to be transported to the hospital. The Ottawa person is using a lot more common sense.

Canadians are much less likely to shy away from the hospital when they need it. Actually more people go when they don't, which is why our wait times are so high at emergency and to get specialist visits.

In this case, that will be to our advantage.

Wasn't the deputy told to drive himself?


We need some common sense applied to our approaches, some countries have it, some... not so much.

He went to a health care clinic and surprised them. They, in turn, had to get him transportation to the hospital. If the deputy had been sick with Ebola, he would have spread it all over the place. The Ottawa person is exhibiting more common sense.

a reply to: tothetenthpower will follow this story, good the guy called ahead...the dallas cop, he was told to go somewhere if he had symptoms.....I thought it was dumb that they didn 't have a special place or call ahead if the dallas exposed people showed symptoms.

Ah, thank you for the correction. Above comments re: common sense still applies.

The deputy probably buys the CDCs assurances.

 


Could it be that the person under observation was following this suggestion?


Ottawa is urging any Canadians living in Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia to leave the Ebola-ravaged countries while they still can, warning that the government cannot guarantee it would be able to evacuate expatriates who fall ill in West Africa.

Canada's Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development updated its travel advisories for the three countries hardest hit by the Ebola outbreak Friday with a new recommendation that Canadians, "consider leaving by commercial means while they are still available."

Medical wards have to deal with infectious substances all the time - everything from urine and blood from druggies with Hepatitis, HIV, AIDS or Herpes. The biggest fear for medical staff is being cut with concealed "sharps" like razor blades, contaminated needles, scalpels, sharpened screwdrivers, stanley knives.

Fever
Severe headache
Muscle pain
Weakness
Diarrhea
Vomiting

Or just the flu? Tis the season after all.

I have flown to other Countries a lot and a severe case of jet lag after 2-3 Days in airports will produce the same. All the same and I've never even been to Africa.

How many calls will come in this fall with flu season?

Peace

Though The rate of transmission thus far in the western world is low, without a working vaccine Ebola will probably be roaming around for years,this is my concern, that like the common cold Ebola is here to stay.
fingers crossed a vaccine will be made available asap.

You're kidding?

Wow.

News is slow in this country, but I guess that's better than spreading panic.

They announced it on the news the other night, but only said that it was a person with an infectious disease that was in isolation. No mention of which hospital, and there are at least 4 hospitals in Edmonton, maybe more.

It was about a ten second report.....

Well apparently we'll know about these Ontario cases by 6PM eastern.

So if they did do testing on that Edmonton patient, the results should be available at the same time really.

Let's hope it's just the flu and we are being cautious.

It appears the Edmonton patient has been cleared.

Now to wait on the case from Ottawa. Honestly, maybe we should not be told about these possible cases and told only if they are positive. This waiting game is very trying.

They keep downplaying the virus, the press conference was just on regarding the possible ebola patient in Belleville Ontario, the Doctor is saying you can't get it from shaking hands, when we already know the virus is in the sweat and you can contract it by skin to skin contact. What the frack is wrong with everybody in a position of authority on this, they also said they are just taking the usual pre-cautionary measures.

Why are people still flying from the infected areas?

They should be held in quarantine for 21 days until departure!

Wtf is in charge?

I'm sorry, but this ebola is just bullsh#t. It has to be one of the easiest viruses to contain yet they're failing miserably, if we're to believe it's real. Every news outlet is pushing the fear button on this just as the markets are caving in. Get ready to grab your ankles and ask for more.

The news local and national have announced that the Winnipeg lab says that the Ottawa patient does not have ebola. link[edit by]edit on 13-10-2014 by aboutface because: link
