Emory University Hospital has been told that a patient with the Ebola virus will be transferred to its hospital in Atlanta.
Emory says it has a special isolation unit to treat patients that are exposed to serious infectious diseases that is separate from other patient areas at the hospital.
Emory’s isolation unit is one of only four such units in the country, according to the hospital, which also said that its staff are highly trained in the procedures necessary to care for the patient.
A spokesperson from the hospital said the exact arrival date of the patient is unknown.
White House officials are expected to reassure a nervous public that this doesn’t pose a terrific threat because something much worse will most likely happen next week.
They’ve got a system, you know.
