The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Tuesday, that no less than 15 Americans were infected with Ebola from a solitary U.S. health worker and have been conveyed back to the United States.
They all work for Partners in Health, a charitable organization that has been helping battle the Ebola widespread in West Africa.
Through the weekend, Partners in Health said 10 of its staff members may have been presented to the regularly destructive infection when they were attempting to help the patient who hasn’t been distinguished and who’s in discriminating condition at the National Institutes of Health out of Washington, D.C.
Presently, four have been recognized and are being brought back for surveillance. As such, one and only individual, the first patient, has tried positive for Ebola signs.
It’s not clear in what way numerous individuals got presented to the infection.
According to CDC spokesman Tom Skinner, “We are still investigating and hopefully we will have an answer to that question,” He added, “The circumstances around all these exposures are what we are looking at right now.”
Ebola has been exposed to more than 24,000 individuals in Sierra Leone, Guinea, and Liberia and executed more than 10,000 of them. The patient at NIH is the eleventh to be dealt with in the United States.
The disease is highly infectious and for the short time it wreaked havoc in the 3 West African nations, were hard hit. As health workers, they should have been more careful in dealing with what was left of Ebola.
Health worker contamination cases were not as big as this during the height of the infection. There must be a breakdown of discipline or this wouldn’t have happened. The excuse given isn’t acceptable at all. Just when the operation is winding down, something like this has to happen. This should not have been the case.
