Two persons who had recently come back from West African region have tested negative for Ebola in Missouri and New York. They will however remain under observation until all test reports come out.
One of these travelers had returned from Mali and tested negative for Ebola. The authorities however did not wish to take any risk and placed the person in an isolation ward at the Bellevue Hospital Center.
Similarly another woman patient who had returned from West Africa has been put under observation in Crystal City, Missouri. The patient in this case too has been put in isolation ward and will be tested again on Saturday.
Noticeably, the patient is also being examined for flu, malaria and any other related ailments. The authorities are not saying much about the patient but she is a nurse by profession. However, in this case the medical authorities are not telling the country, this woman nurse visited.
Some of the Ebola cases have also been reported from Mali, a small nation that shares boundary with Guinea. Around 5,240 people have died from Ebola far and most of these deaths have been reported from the three countries of Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia.
However, the good part is that of these deaths only six have been reported from Mali. The disease has been contained to a large extent but not before over 5,000 human lives were lost to the viral epidemic.
Stringent medical procedures have been put in place in US to monitor people who are suspected of suffering from Ebola and the treatment being provided to these two people can be seen in this light only.
