OK sorry, that was a misleading headline. But if you weren’t aware, there is a terrible Ebola outbreak in West Africa (previous posts for more info). Doctors and aid workers are also at high risk, and recently, Sierra Leone’s top doctor was infected and died of the virus. Now, a few American aid workers have also begun to show symtoms, and will be flown to Atlanta to be treated at Emory University. More info from Reuters.
From the article:
“CDC Director Dr. Thomas Frieden said in a conference call that transferring gravely ill patients has the potential to do more harm than good”
Let’s hope for the best!
