    Washington (AFP) - A Texas health care worker who treated a man who later died of Ebola has tested positive for the disease in a preliminary test, US doctors said on Sunday.

    "We knew a second case could be a reality, and we've been preparing for this possibility," said Dr David Lakey, commissioner of the Texas Department of State Health Services.

    Just hit the wire about 15 minutes ago. So much for that "infinitesimal" chance of transmission stateside.



    Bah, merge this with the earlier thread. Damn me for not refreshing

    Lemmy, is there any talk or training about Ebola in your alleged law enforcement job?

    if you believe barack's lies, you can keep his lies.
    why am i not surprised...this is one of the most secretive and destructive administrations ever. from the lies about benghazi to what basically amounts to malpractice by this administration(not securing our borders), i have no confidence and believe we're all on our own. the gov't is more concerned about being PC than protecting the citizens.

    All true. His disdain for the American Citizens has come out in many of his policies. His lies are monumental. I'm even a little surprised that ebola is getting as much press as it is, and yet, the enterovirus68 doesn't have much info out there. It has killed American children, and very little reporting on it.

    this. Ebola is a scary thing but that other virus is worse. You have a better chance at winning the lottery then getting ebola but if one of your kids is in the hotspot were that enterovirus is they have a good chance of getting it.

    The sky isn't falling. She had extensive contact. Likely broke protocol. wgas/wgaf.

    Instead of waiting for a cue from the TV, I implore you all to do some research. This isn't a shocker. Nor is it the end of the world. Shit happens when treating deadly pathogens.
