10,000 Monitored for Ebola in US Over Fall & Winter

Recommended Posts

More than 10,000 people in the United States were monitored for symptoms of Ebola this past fall and winter, according to a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

In late October, the CDC recommended that everyone in the United States who had possibly been exposed to Ebola — including people returning from an Ebola-affected country, as well as those who cared for Ebola patients here — be monitored for 21 days after their last exposure for symptoms of the disease.

Within a week, all 50 states were following these guidelines. The people being monitored took their own temperatures twice a day, and reported their health status to a public health official at least once daily. Those deemed at high risk for Ebola infection reported their health status twice daily, and had an official come by to check on them in person at least once a day.

From November to March, 10,344 people were each monitored for 21 days for symptoms of Ebola, according to the new report.

Wow, talk abotu downplaying the risks! At least they were monitoring them, would have been nice to know where they were to avoid though.

BlueHawk, remember when they appointed the ebola czar? All info on ebola in the U.S. completely dried up.

That many people traveled to Ebola infected areas in Africa in just those few months? :huh: 

I know some of them were doctors and missionaries but how many African immigrants were going home for a visit?

Yeah, just after that "Spokesman" was crowned, heck, even any information from or about Him vanished too! I pretty much doubt that many traveled to suck pits, but boy, they will never let on that that many people fleeing from them are slipping in.  *SIGH*

 

:balk2: With all these immigrants from any of the infested lands!
