A woman who recently died from a heart attack has tested negative for Ebola. She died at a Brooklyn hair salon and had recently visited one of the West African counties which are under the grip of Ebola. It was being anticipated if she had died from Ebola but the medical tests did not confirm this. The information has been notified by New York City Health Officials this Wednesday.
The woman had come from Guinea around three weeks ago. She did not show any symptoms of Ebola and was under the scanner of health officials in New York as the woman had travelled during the 21 day quarantine period.
New York State Health Officials are tracking over 300 people who have traveled to the West African region during the last few weeks and this woman was one of these people. Fire officials in New York confirmed that they had received a call from a hair salon. The caller said that one of their customers had died from heart attack.
Blood samples from the lady were collected and given over to health officials for further testing. The results then came negative for Ebola. Increasing number of people across the globe are being diagnosed for Ebola and medical authorities in United States do not want to take any chances.
It was therefore that the woman had been kept on the checklist of probable Ebola patients.
Dr. Craig Spenser is the other person in New York who was successfully treated for Ebola after he contacted the virus during his duty with Doctors without Borders in Guinea.
