News: First Ebola case diagnosed in the US

As of today this last outbreak of the Ebola virus has killed around 3000 people in West Africa. But it’s still giving new cases in different countries.

An unidentified man defined as critically hill has been kept in isolation in Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital because is thought to have contracted the Ebola virus, especially in Liberia two weeks ago.

This unnamed patient wasn’t treating with Ebola-infected patients meanwhile he was in Liberia. He arrived in the US on the 20th of September without any symptoms of the virus. It wasn’t until the 24th of September that his first symptoms hadn’t appeared. Four days after he was kept in isolation.

This reprehensible disease spreads via close contact with bodily fluids. As a matter of fact, health officials are working to keep in touch to everyone who had been near to this Ebola affected patient. After that, all those people will be monitored 21 days to make sure if they have contracted the illness.

The Texas Health Hospital where the patient had hospitalized said that they are prepared and ready to fight this disease and to help stopping it.

I thing that everybody is a little scared because of the new Ebola outbreak. This is an extremely beastly disease and you don’t know where will be the next country being affected as well as is we will be capable to battle against it.

We all hope the best for everyone and a lot of luck and rays of hope to everyone who’s affected of Ebola virus.
