The Ebola Gazette

A quick run down of some important developments with the Dallas Ebola case:

  • Apparently, the patient's travel history was known at his first presentation but not communicated to the rest of his care team--a major flaw. I am sure the patient's allergies were easily communicated so why not his travel history?
  • EMS workers are part of the circle of contacts and their ambulance will be cleaned appropriately
  • There is some concern over one particular contact of the source patient

In other news, enterovirus patient deaths have been reported in Rhode Island.
