Ebola in Washington, D.C., Now? (Georgia Too?)


A patient with Ebola-like symptoms is being treated at Howard University Hospital in Washington, D.C., a hospital spokesperson confirmed late Friday morning.

The patient had traveled to Nigeria recently.

That person has been admitted to the hospital in stable condition, and is being isolated and tested. The medical team is working with the CDC to determine whether the patient has Ebola.

And we haven’t suspended flights from the outbreak zone and secured the borders, why?

Right — Mr. CDC says it wouldn’t do any good.

Alrighty then… Surely political correctness and President Obama’s open borders policies aren’t influencing that. Right?

Update: A prison inmate in Georgia is being tested for Ebola.

COBB COUNTY, Ga. (CBS Atlanta/AP) —  An inmate at the Cobb County Jail is reportedly being test for Ebola.

WSB-TV reports that the man told jail officials he recently traveled to Africa after developing a fever while in custody.

He was arrested overnight and charged with DUI.
