Another American Doctor Contracted Ebola While In Africa, Treated Secretly At Georgia Hospital

Another American Doctor Contracted Ebola While In Africa, Treated Secretly At Georgia Hospital

NBC News

An American doctor infected with Ebola in Sierra Leone last month has gone quietly home after spending six weeks at Emory University’s special biocontainment unit, the hospital said Monday. The doctor, who has asked not to be named for now, was working for the World Health Organization when he was infected.

His treatment and recovery hasn’t been covered wall to wall like the other Ebola patients, who include medical missionaries Dr. Kent Brantly and Nancy Writebol, both treated at Emory, and Dr. Rick Sacra and NBC cameraman Ashoka Mukpo, both treated at Nebraska Medical Center. Emory’s also treating Dallas nurse Amber Vinson, infected while treating the only U.S. Ebola patient to have died, Thomas Eric Duncan. A second nurse infected while treating Duncan, Nina Pham, is in a special unit at the National Institutes of Health outside Washington, D.C.

“In coordination with the CDC and Georgia Department of Public Health, the patient was determined to be free of virus and to pose no public health threat. The patient has asked to remain anonymous and left the hospital for an undisclosed location. He will make a statement at a later date,” Emory said in a statement.

“As a result of the virus, my condition worsened and I became critically ill soon after I arrived at Emory. Through rigorous medical treatment, skillful nursing, and the full support of a health-care team, I am well on the way to a full recovery,” the patient said in a statement issued last week.

Bear out this scenario. A couple more Americans contact Ebola here in the US within the next two weeks. The Regime, through its mouthpiece in the CDC advises Americans to take all precautions and limit contact in public places. People listen to them, extreme anxiety starts to ensue, and people stay home. People stay home and don't go to the polls to vote in the upcoming elections. That is, all except liberal groups like ACORN who are rounding up drunks, homeless, druggies, career welfare recipients, and other to take to the polls and have them vote as they tell them. The uninformed voters will also head to the polls as they never listen to the news and always vote Democrat since they mostly leach off society. Come January, we'll have a Democrat controlled House, Senate, and the country under dictatorial rule.
