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.
