Deadly Ebola Virus Has Been Diagnosed In A Patient Who Is In The ‘Strict Isolation’ Section In Dallas, USA
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has confirmed the first patient to accidentally carry Ebola to the United States has been diagnosed at a hospital in Dallas.
Four other people with Ebola — all medical volunteers working in West Africa — have been evacuated to the U.S. for treatment, but this is the first case in a traveler. The patient is at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas. The CDC said it would release more details later Tuesday.
Texas Health Presbyterian said in a statement late Monday that it had admitted a patient into strict isolation “based on the patient’s symptoms and recent travel history.” It did not release further details, citing patient confidentiality.
