The first case of Ebola virus in the United States was confirmed on Tuesday by the Centers for Disease Control. This is the first diagnosis of the deadly virus in the U.S.
An unnamed patient was placed in “strict isolation” at the Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas. The story is developing but hospital representatives did mention that they tested the patient for Ebola due to his symptoms and also recent travel history.
Over 3000 people have died from the recent Ebola outbreak that was first identified only 6 months ago.
Such an awful virus and our thoughts go out to this patient and everyone else affected.
