American Health Worker Who Treated Thomas Duncan Is Confirmed Positive To Ebola Virus


And it keeps spreading....A female nurse who treated the late Liberian man that brought Ebola into America is said to have tested positive to the virus. The healthcare worker got the virus despite following normal protocol of wearing a gown, gloves, mask and shield while treating U.S. 'patient zero' Thomas Duncan was still infected while the second person who also had contact with the infected nurse has been placed in isolation.

 Head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention told Face the Nation on Sunday that a number of healthcare workers, all of those who treated Duncan, are now considered potentially exposed. He said that possibilities of more Ebola victims rising are expected in the coming days.
Meanwhile, U.S. government has ordered five airports to start screening passengers from West Africa for symptoms of fever.
