Man Being Tested At Mount Sinai Hospital For Possible Ebola Virus
CBS New York ^ | 8/4/2014 | Unattributed

Posted on 08/04/2014 2:32:50 PM PDT by mojito

A patient at Mount Sinai Hospital was under treatment Monday afternoon, after being tested after traveling to a country where the Ebola virus is present, the hospital said in a statement.

The man arrived at the East Harlem medical center’s emergency room early Monday morning with high fever and gastrointestinal symptoms. The man told doctors he had recently traveled to a West African country where Ebola has been reported, the hospital said.

The man has been placed in “strict isolation” and is undergoing various tests to determine the cause of the symptoms, the hospital said.

I don’t worry about the guy in the hospital being tested.

I worry about the 10,000 people that flew in from Africa in the last month who weren’t tested.

If this were a sane nation like we used to be, in, oh say, 1959, there would be travel bans & steps taken to protect the American nation....but now we are some kind of universal empire, so anything goes.

protect the American nation

That's been declared racist, so there won't be anymore of that.

Yup....it’s been declared that it’s more important that America become “the flop-house” for the third world than an actual nation. People under 35 have no idea there was once a self-respecting nation here instead of what we have become.

Now, I just heard that the Marine in Mexico has ebola. Send the jet to get him.

I just read a post on NRO Corner about Ebola fear-mongering. The fact that Ebola is not spread through the air, can be, I suppose, comforting to the hundreds of unfortunate victims of this hideous disease. The disease multiplies exponentially. I think something more than just remaining calm should be done.

Why did they have to take him to an Israeli hospital????

Don't worry too much. TSA is pretty thorough. Many of these people will be receiving coast to coast all city tours of the U.S.

This is part of the diversity celebration month which was just announced. Most recipients receive gifts, prizes, and meal vouchers in addition to all city tours. 25% are even offered low interest business loans if qualified.

I went and looked at that piece.

My reaction is that while NRO doesn't like Savage, he does have a Phd in epidemiology. He's not anti-science, or scientifically ignorant.

The guy at NRO, on the other hand, has a degree in beltway flakery, and brandishes the typical GOP-e stuff that now flourishes at NRO.

I don’t know why they don’t confine these suspected cases to one or more of those medical ships, just off-shore. That way the people are “home”, but the mainland is protected.

How did he arrive while showing symptoms, by subway, by cab? How many hospital workers, other patients, came into contact with him before the isolation?

iI worry about the 10,000 people that flew in from Africa in the last month who weren’t tested.

I worry about those that he flew in with, and everyone that he and they have been in contact with since then. This is probably closer to 100,000 than 10,000. Of course, the same applies to the other 10,000 you mentioned.

Political correctness KILLS. I hope and pray we don't get a massive epidemic of this particular disease, but the very foundation of PC - lies and distortions of the truth, wrapped in nice-sounding words - renders an entire society incapable of rational thought. We will deserve everything we get as a society for electing and re-electing this horse's arse.

I’m tired of seeing these doctors on TV parading as experts and declaring that there is nothing to be concerned about her because we have a modern hospital system.
How would that hold up in an inner city or congested metro are like DC when they have say 10,000 - 20,000 patients flood in?

Questions, questions. Rest assured, answers will NOT be forthcoming. From the NYSlimes:

“A hospital spokeswoman, Dorie Klissas, said that to protect the patient’s privacy the hospital was not making public his occupation, which country he had been in, whether he had been exposed to a patient with Ebola there, or whether he had close contacts like family members, friends or co-workers who were also at risk. Ms. Klissas said the patient’s blood was being tested for Ebola, but she declined to say when the test results would be available.”

“patient’s privacy”

There you go, typical liberal bull and why we should be deeply concerned about this growing deadly debacle. A person who may have exposed Ebola to thousands of Americans and they are worried about HIS/HER privacy rights? How about the rights we have to protect ourselves and families?

They are saying he does not have it.

So,he didn’t have it, the woman who basically dropped dead at Gatwick airport didn’t have it.

But I’m starting to think they won’t all not have it.

Look at this guy, he walked into the emergency room, suppose he did have ebola, what would they do? Quarantine everyone who was in the emergency room? What about all the people he passed on the street? Those in his home?

On the CBS evening news a few moments ago, there was a different video with some hired media talking head doctor who was smiling all the way through the report. All warm and fuzzy for the sheeple, don’cha know.

I posted an article yesterday that false negative readings for Ebola tests were quite common, even in people showing advanced symptoms of the disease.

From the hospital's point of view, this is more of a PR problem than a medical one: Do you really want to announce that a patient in NYC has tested positive?

You'd have a real panic on your hands.

Better to just announce that everything is ok (and my gosh that was awfully quick) and then try to put in place a plan for when you will have to announce a positive case.

Because it will happen. And soon.

It is pretty funny. On any given day ERs have to hold patients for hours and sometimes a day or two waiting for an ICU bed to become available. The number critical care beds for negative pressure strict isolation is negligible.
A couple hundred cases in any one city would overwhelm the resources in a couple of states.

Not to mention that in 1959 there was precious little jet travel.

Pan Am was the first up with the Boeing 707 in fall of 1958, and those flights went to London and Paris, not Africa.

It’s going to be a cruel joke if mass global jet travel proves to be the disease vector that spreads the next great plague.

Shouldn’t the people on the mainland be equally exposed to the potential dangers of ebola?

Apparently they get a lot of false negatives in the initial tests, so these two could have been infected.

Or maybe not.

I don’t think people should get hysterical. This site looks like the chicken yard in the rainstorm...the sky is falling, the sky is falling. Hysteria doesn’t help.

Figure out reasonable precautions and take them.

If the disease is here, it’s here and it’s too late to stop it. Flights from the affected countries should have been halted long ago, but it’s too late now. This has gone well beyond those African countries.

Actually, it has gone from one victim, occurring not too long ago, to hundreds at this moment. Also, the fear of Ebola is that it has the ability to explode if not dealt with. Furthermore, we all make comments; my comments are just that; I won’t bore everyone by trying to close down all avenues of nuances, extrapolations, inferences, etc.
