American Flown to Nebraska Hospital After Possible Ebola Exposure in the Congo

By Gina Martinez Updated: December 29, 2018 5:02 PM ET

An American who was potentially exposed to the Ebola virus while treating patients in the Democratic Republic of the Congo has been flown to the University of Nebraska Medical Center.

According to the hospital, the U.S. citizen has no Ebola symptoms, but will be monitored closely and if any symptoms develop, the Nebraska Biocontainment Unit will be activated and the person admitted.

The Nebraska Biocontainment Unit is one of a handful of highly advanced facilities in the United States that was built for treating patients with highly infectious diseases.

Dr. Ted Cieslak, infectious diseases specialist with the hospital and associate professor of epidemiology at the University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Public Health, said the person is not officially a patient.

“This person may have been exposed to the virus but is not ill and is not contagious,” Cieslak said in a statement. “Should any symptoms develop, the Nebraska Medicine/UNMC team is among the most qualified in the world to deal with them.”

According to the hospital, the doctor was flown by private plane and then taken by car. Doctors are working with federal, state and county public health officials to monitor the doctor in a secure area separate from the public and other patients.

Monitoring could last up to two weeks, the hospital said.

The University of Nebraska Medical Center treated three patients with Ebola in 2014 and in 2015 several others were monitored after exposure, none of whom developed the disease.

The Ebola virus causes an acute, serious illness which is often fatal if untreated. The latest outbreak in the Congo began in August and has killed 347 people, according to the World Health Organization.

Absence of proof is not proof of absence.

Could I ask who's calling? <a href=" http://xnxx.in.net/ ">xnxx</a> Members of her family including her children Sir Mark and Carol Thatcher attended a short service in the chapel of the central London site before a solid oak casket containing her ashes was placed in the ground.

What university do you go to? <a href=" http://xnxx.in.net/#stork ">xnxx</a> The posts were unrelated to the former high school teacher's guilty plea last year to charges she had sex with an underage ex-student, and Jones' attorney, Eric Deters, stressed in his opening statement that Jones is only seeking damages up to Feb. 1, 2011. He urged jurors not to judge her by actions after that. Jones, 28, still has a relationship with the student and they have said they plan to marry.

Have you seen any good films recently? <a href=" http://xnxx.in.net/#lake ">xnxx</a> U.S. stocks have been hit recently by weak earnings frombellwethers like Wal-Mart Stores and Cisco Systems and by concerns that the Federal Reserve may startreducing its bond-buying program as early as next month.

Do you have any exams coming up? <a href=" http://xnxx.in.net/ ">xnxx</a> Geoffrey Reeves, the Science paper’s lead author, likens the phenomenon to a tetherball, the magnetic field construed as the pole. The electromagnetic waves hit the tetherball—i.e., the electrons—and the electrons circle around the magnetic field in repeated loops. And with each rotation, the electrons gain more and more momentum.

I'd like to open a business account <a href=" http://xnxx.in.net/#month ">xnxx</a> Xi Fu's story is one that tells of how strong determination and hard work overcame the difficulties of surviving in a society scant in infrastructure and support for the disabled and where they often face discrimination. Surrounded by cloth, paper, brushes and ink, the 34-year-old whose name means 'Seeking Happiness' is a common sight in the underground passes of the bustling shopping district of Xidan or tourist walkways of Houhai in Beijing.

Looking for a job <a href=" http://xnxx.in.net/ ">xnxx</a> @36 - Thank god for that, I was beginning to think it was just me. I too have noticed Aggers loves to twist the knife on England when things dont go well. I dont know if you've noticed this as I have, but he especially takes it upon himself to lead anti-captain campaigns as soon as an English captain falls short of form. He did it to Vaughn, he did it to Strauss and he will do it to Cook.
