That person has been admitted to the hospital in stable condition, and is being isolated and tested.
"In an abundance of caution, we have activated the appropriate infection control protocols, including isolating the patient," said hospital spokesperson Kerry-Ann Hamilton in a statement. "Our medical team continues to evaluate and monitor progress in close collaboration with the CDC and the Department of Health."
Hamilton did not share further details about the patient, citing privacy reasons, but said the hospital will provide updates as warranted.

Are ebola-like symptoms in this instance fever and aches, or bleeding from every orifice?

Why don't these news website clearly label where they are located? In the internet age stories are linked all over and many locations have the same name. If this does turn out to be ebola it might be just what DC politicians need to get serious about containing it.

If you have a headache and bleeding orifices the night after a drinking binge, it's probably not Ebola. Maybe EbolAIDS, though.

Duncan helped the infected pregnant woman to the hospital on September 15th. But he also abruptly quit his job on September 4th, which suggests he might have known he had been already exposed.

He boarded a plane bound for the US on the 19th, arrived here on the 20th.

He became symptomatic enough to go the hospital on September 24.

We have a possible range of 9-21 days for how long it took for him to start manifesting serious symptoms.

It's now Oct 3. It's been 13 days since his flight. If he infected people on the flight, they should be popping up now.

The people in Dallas with the apartment, if he infected them, are going to start manifesting symptoms in another day or four. If the kids spread it to other kids, we should know in another week.

This is just the first case, wait until the infected numbers in Africa are much higher, with our gooberment doing such a fine job stopping it from crossing oceans we are bound to see cases pop up more and more frequently. Sure they may contain this one, but since travel restrictions and quarantines are racist, the numbers are bound to grow here. Remember this snowball just started rolling down the hill.

No, no, no. We just need to wait and see. It's not like it's a deadly disease and can kill millions.

A little misleading.

For instance

•Total Deaths: 710
•Laboratory Confirmed Cases: 950


That is about 73%

You can not look at suspected cases. We have already had 10 or so suspected in the US.

If the one confirmed case we have dies, you can not say that it is only a 10% death rate.

It would be a 100% death rate.
