Ebola NYC

A 33-year-old doctor who just returned from treating Ebola patients in Africa quarantined himself inside a Harlem apartment with a fever — and has now been rushed to Bellevue Hospital, the Daily News has learned.

The drama unfolded shortly before noon on W. 147th St., where FDNY hazardous materials specialists sealed off the apartment as EMS rushed the doctor, clad in an exposure suit, to Bellevue.

He told authorities that he recently got back from Guinea, where he had been treating patients.

Dr. Craig Spencer of Columbia University Medical Center was treating Ebola patients in Guinea and returned home recently.

All on Canadaian terrorism.  Made me want to throw up, how about you?

 

I am not surprised.  Someone should alert the Ebola Czar and his boss, Teh Won how things are done in the real world.

Rwanda is requiring all visitors from the U.S. and Spain to self-monitor, fill out an extensive questionnaire and report their medical condition for the first 21 days over Ebola fears.

The order by the Rwanda government was posted on the website of the U.S. Embassy in Rwanda yesterday.

It said the Rwandan Ministry of Health had introduced new Ebola Virus Disease screening requirements which required anyone who had been in the two countries during the last 22 days to report their medical condition by phone – regardless of whether they are experiencing symptoms – for the duration of their visit, or for the first 21 days.

Shamelessly lifted from IOTW.

A paralysed man has been able to walk again after a pioneering therapy that involved transplanting cells from his nasal cavity into his spinal cord.

Darek Fidyka, who was paralysed from the chest down in a knife attack in 2010, can now walk using a frame.

The treatment, a world first, was carried out by surgeons in Poland in collaboration with scientists in London.

Details of the research are published in the journal Cell Transplantation.

BBC One’s Panorama programme had unique access to the project and spent a year charting the patient’s rehabilitation.

Darek Fidyka, 40, from Poland, was paralysed after being stabbed repeatedly in the back in the 2010 attack.

He said walking again – with the support of a frame – was “an incredible feeling”, adding: “When you can’t feel almost half your body, you are helpless, but when it starts coming back it’s like you were born again.”

Prof Geoff Raisman, chair of neural regeneration at University College London’s Institute of Neurology, led the UK research team.

He said what had been achieved was “more impressive than man walking on the moon”.

Did the “white devil” do this as well?  Gosh, I feel like I’m back in a 1930 movie when I hear that term.  I was in school many over a half century ago and I learned about mutation back then.  It happens.

‘We are using tests now that weren’t using in the past, but there seems to be a belief that the virus load is higher in these patients [today] than what we have seen before. If true, that’s a very different bug.

A top scientist worries that Ebola has mutated to become more contagious.
