CDC Confirms First Case Of Ebola In US

A patient being treated at a Dallas, Texas, United States hospital is
the first person diagnosed with Ebola in the US, the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention announced yesterday.
Several other Americans were diagnosed in West Africa and then brought to the United States for treatment.
person, who first tested positive for Ebola in the US is a patient at
Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas, hospital spokesman Stephen
O’Brien said yesterday.
The CDC is expected to provide more details on the case in a press conference at 5:30 p.m.
Ebola outbreak has been centered in the West African countries of
Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia, though there have been concerns about
international air travel and other factors — including the fact the
symptoms might not appear until two to 21 days after one is infected —
may contribute to its spread.
More than 3,000 people in West
Africa have died after being infected with Ebola, according to a World
Health Organization report from last week. The same report stated that
there had been 6,553 cases of the virus overall, though the number is
suspected of being much higher given difficulties in tracking and
reporting the disease.
According to the CDC, Ebola causes viral
hemorrhagic fever, which can affect multiple organ systems in the body
and are often accompanied by bleeding. Early symptoms include sudden
onset of fever, weakness, muscle pain, headaches and a sore throat, each
of which can be easily mistaken early on for other ailments like
malaria, typhoid fever, meningitis or even the plague.
