American doctor sick with Ebola

The first case of Ebola in the United States outside of a controlled clinical setting was confirmed in Dallas, Texas on Tuesday.

CBS 6 local affiliate reports that a patient infected with the deadly virus was admitted to Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas on Monday.

The Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta was so confident that the patient is infected with Ebola that a medical team was dispatched to Dallas.

The CDC released a statement Tuesday saying the patient has been placed in “strict isolation” at the hospital.

From CBS 6:

Health officials said given the information that the unnamed patient had been in the West Africa area where the Ebola virus exists and the type of symptoms they were exhibiting, testing was being performed.

Monday night Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas released the following statement:

“Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas has admitted a patient into strict isolation to be evaluated for potential Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) based on the patient’s symptoms and recent travel history. The hospital is following all Centers for Disease Control and Texas Department of Heath recommendations to ensure the safety of patients, hospital staff, volunteers, physicians and visitors. The CDC anticipates preliminary results tomorrow (Wednesday).”

The World Health Organization (WHO) predicts there will be 1 million cases of Ebola diagnosed in Liberia by January.

    • sassyshe

      This is what i dont understand if people are going to Africa where the infection is confirmed before you make them board a plane, how about make sure they get tested before. Dude couldve affected anyone. But since HIV is under control, i guess we need a new virus to have people in an epidemic, have the drug companies fight to sell so that they can make billions and give a beautiful kick back to the govt and force our us and our kids to have yet again another vaccination dumped in our bodies

      Don’t quit your job just yet. But if what I imagine to be true will happen, those of us with less than $20,000 or so saved, will only have enough money for basic provisions. Beyond that, like access to certain things now, some things will be out of reach– basic things we take for granted like immediately hot water, over-the-counter medicine, and et cetera. I believe in having access to weapons, but it really starts with educating oneself on land survival (understanding what natural plants can be eaten), defense, and self medication. Fat people, cripples, and those use to only living absolutely civilly will not survive. Don’t mistake Mercedez Benz and corparate jobs and living civil…. Yt colonist creat democracy initially through mayhem, they’re not civil, ask the Indians. They’re crrative and savage. Learn to think like organized colonist.

      This African lady called into Russ Parr a few weeks ago and said the media was concerned with the wrong thing because they were focusing on the doctors they brought back from W. Africa with known Ebola. She said we should be more concerned with the people going back to W. Africa to visit families, who come back home and the symptoms don’t present until they are here in the US. Lo and behold, she was right :yes:

      *jacked & ON TOPIC

      A security contractor with a gun and three prior convictions for assault and battery was allowed on an elevator with President Obama during a Sept. 16 trip to Atlanta, violating Secret Service protocols, according to three people familiar with the incident.

      The incident occurred as Obama appeared at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to discuss the U.S. response to the Ebola crisis.

      The contractor did not comply when Secret Service agents asked him to stop using a phone camera to videotape the president in the elevator, according to the people familiar with the incident.

      Agents questioned him, and used a database check to learn of his criminal history.

      When a supervisor from the private security firm approached and learned of the agents’ concern, the contractor was fired on the spot and agreed to turn over his gun — surprising agents, who had not realized he was armed during his encounter with Obama.

      Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) said he was appalled when whistleblowers came forward to him with this account. The Washington Post confirmed details of the event with other people familiar with the review.

      “You have a convicted felon within arms reach of the president and they never did a background check,” Chaffetz said. “Words aren’t strong enough for the outrage I feel for the safety of the President and his family. “

    • Ni ni

      I’m currently reading the article a Dr. Cyril Broderick wrote saying that Ebola is a genetically modified organism that was published on a Liberian website. I believe he is saying that American manufactured AIDs as well as Ebola and also that the other countries have been testing Africans for emerging diseases. It’s an interesting read and does sound like an Everest boys type of experiment. The Final Call Muslim news will be doing a story on this subject as we’ll within the next few days.

    • Ni ni

      @Hair Lova, so true. I didn’t know people could work in the medical field (nurses, doctors) with HIV/ Aids until a few years back when I started my new job. I wonder about if they’re allowed to give shots though. accidental Pricks happen all the time, right? Sandra, please shed some light on this when you have time.

      Knows someone that went to doctor once every couple of days

      1. Complained of head aches
      2. Body aches
      3. On their commute to work, says they had irritable bowel and had to stop.
      4. Runs up to door at prior to doctor appointment (makes pressure go up)
      5. Cries at appointments, say how stressful job is.

      Must have a primary care physician and be will to keep appointments, but this can get you 90 days and possible long term.

      A friend told me about this.

      Detectives need help identifying the suspects who broke into a Foster Farms chicken shed in Caruthers and killed about 920 chickens with a golf club.

      Detectives say Foster Farms employees discovered a bloody mess inside the chicken sheds at around 8:30 a.m. Sept 20

      Antonio Puentes has worked with the company for several years, and says he couldn’t believe what happened.

      “Es algo loco,” Puentes says in Spanish. “It’s crazy that someone would break into the chicken shed to kill them. It’s just crazy,” he says in disbelief.

      @NoJoke: We did pre-maritial counseling and I STRONGLY recommend it. Even if you are not spiritual I say get financial counseling. They key things I think you MUST discuss before you wed:
      Roles in the marriage. Is there a head? 50/50?
      KIDS: How you will discipline your kids, Do you want kids, How many, Who can watch the kids, What do you want them to learn, What will you teach them, What will you share with them about your past, Will you be your kid’s friend? Are there girl vs boy double standards? When can they date?
      MONEY: Who pays what, How you will save, Must you both work? What do you expect your mate to make now vs later
      HOUSEHOLD: Where will you live, What kind of home do you want to have? How much do you want to spend on a home? What luxuries do you want? Do you need luxuries? What is a luxury to you?
      RELATIONSHIP: What is a deal breaker? How will we deal with issues when they arise? What are the “rules?” Ex: we have a you come home every night rule. You might be mad or stay out late but I know you better get your :spank: byke in this house. What is the pecking order in the house? Ex: God, Spouse, Kids, Then Immediate family like mother, siblings, etc …… that is how it is in my house. Once you marry you put your wife and husband before anyone else except God. PERIOD. That my mother always gone be here an her I brought him into the world so he need to take care of me first :stop: Obviously you ain’t read ya Bible all the way through. You do honor your mother and father, true. But not at the expense of your wife or husband. If your parent feels that way they need to find their own spouse and have them cleave to them. FOH :rolleyes: And any grown child that doesn’t understand or respect that is just inviting trouble and out of orderness :rofl:
      CHURCH: Will you go? Which church will you attend? Do you believe in God? How will we raise our kids if we are different faiths? What is SERIOUS to you? I mean we all know that the Bible is supposed to be all or nothing … but people pick and choose their sins :bite:

      That’s all I got off the dome :tea:

      what do you mean by traditional counseling
      ——————
      I mean just you and your mate sitting down with a counselor or clergy person.
      We did it in a group setting, with other married people and other engaged couples.
      I found it to be a little more relaxing and gave us the chance to be more honest. Topics were discussed that we didn’t even think off and scenarios were offered and real life experiences were given to combat.
      We actually go back every once in a while (also old people fussing is hilarious)
