US health worker with possible Ebola contact now on C’bean cruise


WASHINGTON (AFP) —
A healthcare worker who may have come in contact with fluids from an Ebola patient who died in Texas is vacationing aboard a cruise ship in the Caribbean, officials said Friday.

The Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital lab supervisor is not showing symptoms of the disease and is voluntarily remaining in isolation in her cabin, Carnival Cruise Lines said in a statement.

The coast guard in Belize was deployed to prevent anyone from disembarking from the ship, including the captain, according to local news reports.

It has been 19 days since the unidentified lab supervisor, who may have handled clinical specimens from Thomas Eric Duncan, has been in the lab with the testing samples.

The incubation period for the disease — meaning the time lapse between infection and the onset of symptoms — is up to 21 days.

  3. After 38 years very little is known about ebola and no drug to treat it. I am being to think it is mutates and has become airborne. Lord help us all.

  4. Someone please tell us the name of the Ship so persons could know if this is where their relatives are working or on vacation so they could take the necessary from now on. There should be a press release over the media informing persons of what they should do if a relative is in a situation like this maybe on the ship. It there was profit - money in it for them or political points they would shout immediately. Our Government is not concern about us instead about who is travelling where the outside not internal matters - the people

    • No, Ebola is NOT airborned. Check the CDC; Centre for Disease Control, Tand the WHO, World Health Organisation to see how Ebola is being spread - THROUGH DIRECT CONTRACT WITH LIQUID.

  5. I believe they now saying the incubation period could sometimes be 42 days.  And who knows if its airborne or not, they possibly wont tell us yet. And I agree [email protected] it may well be transmitted by mosquitos - won't know till its too late!

  6. Militarising the Ebola Crisis

    It’s unclear whether any U.S. healthcare personnel will actually treat patients, but according to the White House, “the U.S. Government will help recruit and organise medical personnel to staff” the centres and “establish a site to train up to 500 health care providers per week.”

    The latter begs the question of practicality: where would these would-be health workers be recruited from?

  7. Repent saith the lord. Repent from your evil ways. For the time of the end is near.mens heart failing them for fear. Only those who dwells in the secret place of the most high will be sheilded from these end time pestilences, deseases and plagues. Please hid to the warnings, the signs are here. The love of many have waxed cold. Satan and his demons are transforming themselves in the forms of human beings and is among us today. Pray my people Pray JESUS is coming soon, LETS BE READY.

  9. am ruling out population control. they just want control of Africa period point blank. why is it that Africa the leading supplier of diamonds a country so rich in wild life and other resources remain so poor. why is every epidemic starting out in Africa. why does every epidemic symptoms always include flu like symptoms, bird flu swine flu,sars, aids, hiv, very puzzling indeed.
