An American health worker who contracted Ebola while volunteering in West Africa will be admitted to a secure treatment centre at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the agency announced on Thursday.
The patient was expected to arrive Friday at the NIH research hospital in Bethesda after being transported to the United States in isolation on a chartered plane. The patient’s name, age and sex have not been released.
The patient had been volunteering at an Ebola treatment center in Sierra Leone. The NIH did not release any further details about the patient.
I think we all hope that one day there will be a vaccination against Ebola that will eventually almost eradicate it, only to have it brought back by a lunatic hippie anti-vaxxer.
