Ebola Patient moved to Emory in Atlanta

| October 15, 2014

EUHMATLANTA — Reports confirm one of the two Texas healthcare workers recently infected with the Ebola virus will be moved to Emory University hospital in Atlanta.  The patient arrived on Wednesday.

The patient to be treated at Emory is the second nurse infected while treating the Liberian patient who died of the disease at the Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas, TX.

At a Wednesday press conference, U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Sylvia Burwell said, “We also are talking with all the specialized hospitals about their ability to take patients if needed.

According to a report from WSB, Frontier Airlines also confirmed that the plane carrying the latest Ebola patient from Cleveland to Dallas recently also passed through Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson airport after the patient disembarked in Dallas and before decontamination began.

Starting Thursday, Hartsfield-Jackson will be screening travelers from the Ebola-stricken countries of Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone for fever and other signs of the virus. Screenings will also be taking place at New York’s JFK Airport, Washington’s Dulles Airport, Newark’s Liberty International Airport and Chicago’s O’Hare Airport.

  1. Bad Move says:

    The first priority of any elected official is the security of the citizenry. Years ago our state entered into a union and formed the USA. The USA has failed in it’s responsibility. This responsibility should now fall back to our Governor. He should not allow these hazards to come to Georgia, and should do everything in his power to stop it. If he refuses, he should be thrown out, if there turns out to be a profit motive behind these decisions, all those responsible should be charged with treason.
