First Case of Ebola Confirmed in Dallas
The Ebola virus is here. The Centers for Disease Control has confirmed that a foreign national has been hospitalized in Dallas with Ebola. The patient left Liberia on Sept. 19, showing no symptoms at the time. CDC officials say there’s no risk to anyone on the flight because he wasn’t symptomatic, but they believe there will be additional cases of infection among those with whom he has been in contact since Sept. 20. According to CBS, “This is by far the largest and deadliest outbreak of Ebola since the disease was first identified in 1976. More people have died in the last six months than in all other Ebola outbreaks combined.” This common strain of Ebola has been around since 1976 and is a very stable virus with no record of mutation, making it more virulent. However, we recommend you review the CDC’s Ebola fact sheet, as well as The Patriot Post’s resources for emergency preparedness.
