Mount Sinai patient who traveled to West Africa tested for Ebola virus | 7online.com

Mount Sinai Hospital is performing tests on a patient who had recently traveled to a West African country where Ebola has been reported, the hospital says.

A male patient with high fever and gastrointestinal symptoms came to the hospital’s emergency room on Monday morning, officials said.

The hospital says the patient has been placed in strict isolation and is undergoing medical screenings to determine the cause of his symptoms.

“All necessary steps are being taken to ensure the safety of all patients, visitors and staff. We will continue to work closely with federal, state and city health officials to address and monitor this case, keep the community informed and provide the best quality care to all of our patients,” the hospital wrote in a statement.

Hmm.  My theory may be about to receive testing.

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

Ebola in NYC? — 6 Comments

  1. If he is now symptomatic, who knows how long he has been infectious and how many have been exposed? I fear Ebola might have already exceeded attempts at any type of quarantine in NYC.

  2. This whole thing is going to be very interesting. I’m heading to upstate NY in a few days. Might just stay there and watch the news. No reason not to.

    Remarkable, though, isn’t it, how careless our “leadership” is about these things. If nothing happens, they will congratulate themselves on their blind dumb luck. If millions die, they’ll say “We were improperly advised.”

    It’s been far too long since plagues wiped out half of Europe. I guess we need a reminder.

    Oh, wait, I forgot. Ebola kills too quickly to spread. Right?Plague_in_Ashod.jpg

      • Ames. Near Canajoharie. 25 minutes NW of Albany. A one-street town. America “the way it used to be.” Not bad, that. Rolling cornfields. Wooden siding. Barns. Simple people. I do not confuse “simple” with “uncomplicated.”

        • Canajoharie still exists? Who knew? I thought it had officially been wiped off the map after having been unofficially wiped off the map by three devastating floods in six years, with the final straw being a terrible blizzard taking down the power for several weeks last winter.
