Ebola outbreak: Texas healthcare worker tests positive after treating US victim

A US healthcare worker who provided hospital care for an Ebola patient who later died has tested positive for the virus and is in a stable condition. Dr Daniel Varga, of the Texas Health Resource, said the worker was in full protective gear when they provided care to Thomas Eric Duncan during his second visit to Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital. Dr Varga did not identify the worker and said the family of the worker have "requested total privacy". Dr Varga said the healthcare worker reported a fever on Friday night as part of a self-monitoring regimen required by the Atlanta-based Centre for Disease Control. Mr Duncan died on Wednesday in Dallas. If the preliminary diagnosis is confirmed, it would be the first known case of the disease being contracted or transmitted in the US.

    If the healthcare worker is white, he/she has nothing to worry about. They will get diagnosed CORRECTLY, and receive the PROPER CARE. #RaceHasItsPrivileges.

    Wrong. Its OUR CDC. The President doesn't micromanage every agency of the federal government. Besides, he's not a Doctor so I can only imagine the crap flowing out of the right wing nuts if he were to tell the Doctors at the CDC how to do their job.
    Stop being a racist moron and start being an American.

    And what about our troops overseas that are controlling this since it was a breach of protocol our troops are walking in contaminated areas handling contaminated materials and personnel. Maybe this will explain the 1 million coffins in Texas Georgia New Mexico Michigan Illinois

    +Aaron mc I know that the only rebuttals a small-minded person such as yourself can muster from its pathetic intellect are: stupid, growup, etc. Those rebuttals are not good ways to refute the findings of peer-review research done by Permanente Journal. Now, who needs to grow up? Further, learn how to read peer-reviewed research. I know, you don't have time for that, because you are too busy trolling on the Net.

    However, I do feel less than smart wasting my time responding to such a mentally-challenged person such as yourself.

My Reflection

My Reflection

This site is a tribute to Buddhism. Buddhism has given me a tremendous inspiration to be who and where I am today. Although I came to America at a very young age, however, I never once forget who I am and where I came from. One thing I know for sure is I was born as a Buddhist, live as a Buddhist and will leave this earth as a Buddhist. I do not believe in superstition. I only believe in karma.

Tipitaka: The pali canon (Readings in Theravada Buddhism). A vast body of literature in English translation the texts add up to several thousand printed pages. Most -- but not all -- of the Canon has already been published in English over the years. Although only a small fraction of these texts are available here at Access to Insight, this collection can nonetheless be a very good place to start.

1. Accept everything just the way it is.
2. Do not seek pleasure for its own sake.
