A nurse tests positive for Ebola Madrid in the first analysis
She attended Viejo Manuel García. Health wait a second test to confirm
ELISA SILIO / EMILIO DE BENITO MADRID 6 OCT 2014 - 18:23 CEST4
Spanish A nursing assistant may be the first case of Ebola infection outside Africa. The health was part of the team that attended the missionary Manuel García Viejo, who died of Ebola on 26 September at the hospital Carlos III de Madrid (currently seconded to La Paz). She was the one who went to the hospital when he felt Alcorcón fever. The first analysis conducted has tested positive. Now the Ministry of Health, whose crisis cabinet is assembled, awaiting confirmation of a second test.
If confirmed, this will be the third case of Ebola fallecieron- treated in Spain-the first two and the first in which the patient is not repatriated from Africa or is treated in the hospital Carlos III de Madrid. The capital has already activated the protocol in September when a Brazilian disturbing symptoms presented in the Southern Bus Station.
The patient was admitted in the morning with a high fever. So the hospital activated the protocol before a possible case of Ebola and is isolated in the emergency room.
Died August 12 religious Miguel Pajares and 13 days old Manuel Garcia, 69, clinical director of the hospital Lunsar. Both were members of the Order of St. John of God. The deaths from the virus now total 3,338, according to the latest official count of the World Health Organization (WHO), dated October 1. The affected countries, with 7,178 infections registered in total, Guinea, Liberia, Nigeria, Senegal and Sierra Leone. Liberia and slashing 2,000 deaths (1,998 in total). Although WHO recognizes that the calculations may be underestimated.
So far, all cases of Ebola were infected in Africa. Remains whether the Liberian entered Texas has infected someone during the time it took to be admitted to hospital after he sent home the first time. Until this is confirmed, it would be the first non-African Ebola case.

Thanks waterboy, I'm questioning this one, and I doubt it.  There is another forum that is big on posting translated news, and I'm assuming this was translated to English, but those translations are seldom legit, and I mean very seldom. Certain sites and their translations have been doing this for years with a terrible success ratio. 

I would say this story is not true - Is my personal guess.

I've been wrong before in the past, I think.   Stern Smile

Yes coyote, looking legit. Are there any reputable English sources to this yet? Fairly significant news, and possibly very bad news.

Thanks for the post "momma". This confirms first patient outside Africa to contract Ebola. I'm sure she took strict precautions but it didn't work. Makes things really scarry. I also believe we will see more cases in Dallas within a week?
I hope I'm wrong though....

Wow. Does that buck the trend? If she had fever since the 30th Sept but only went to the hospital on the 6th Oct, that's 7 days of being actively contagious. Where did she go on holiday? Don't tell me she has been travelling by public transport around Spain to see the sights! LOL.

Is it normal for Ebola patients to have a fever for so long before they feel the need to get treatment. I thought they developed a fever, then almost immediately were stricken with other awful symptoms. I wonder if she is fighting it off?
If it is to be, it is up to me.
