Ebola case believed to be patient from Dallas
By Frank Heinz
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention confirms Tuesday a case of Ebola virus has been diagnosed in the United States.
The CDC has not confirmed that case is in Dallas, but Dallas County Health and Human Services Director Zachary Thompson was copied on an email announcing the diagnosis which is leading to speculation that the diagnosis involves a patient from Dallas.
A news conference will be held at 4:30 p.m. where more information is expected to be released.
On Monday, a patient in a Dallas hospital was being tested for the Ebola virus and was being kept in strict isolation with test results pending, hospital officials said Monday.
In a statement released Monday evening, a spokesperson for Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital said the patient is undergoing evaluation for Ebola based on the patient’s symptoms and recent travel history.
Further details on the Dallas patient were not released due to medical confidentiality and personal privacy reasons.
Ebola is spread through close contact with blood or other bodily fluids. It is not spread through the air, through food or water.
I would HIGHLY advise taking the last sentence I highlighted in red with a huge grain of salt because this particular strain is not true in any way shape or form!
