Stop the Countdown

Yay that they caught it, but boo that there was anything to catch.

Quasi Renaissance Man

Friday evening there was a new confirmed Ebola case in Liberia.  Right now, they aren’t sure how she contracted the virus, so that’s a major issue of investigation.  The good news is that the system worked.  She apparently presented herself at a hospital complaining of a headache and a couple of the other symptoms.  The Liberian health care workers sent her to the Ebola screening/triage unit, where they thought she might have Ebola.  She’s currently in treatment and contact tracers are monitoring all her contacts, including immediate family members.

So, not Ebola free yet, but Liberia has shown that they can detect cases right away before it spirals out of control again.
