Ebola scare

Though Ebola has fallen out of the headlines, it’s still a huge problem in West Africa. And now the specialized Ebola treatment facilities in the U.S.–including Maryland’s NIH facilities– have a new influx of patients, after a group of aid workers who had traveled to Sierra Leone contracted the disease.

The NIH’s Ebola patient, who has not been identified, took a turn for the worse yesterday, and is now in critical condition. Of the 11 Ebola patients treated in the U.S., 9 have survived and 2 have died. Two other patients from the same aid group have also been admitted to the NIH, but haven’t shown signs of the disease yet.
