Ebola Patient Coming to the United States

Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia has been preparing a special isolation room for a patient with Ebola Disease who is scheduled to arrive in the next couple days.  The Hospital didn’t say if the patient is one of the two US citizens infected with Ebola in Liberia or not.

The hospital said this special isolation unit is separate from other areas of the hospital and it is equipped with special precautionary equipment and has infrastructure to keep people safe from the spread of the virus.  There are only four hospitals in the United States with this type of facility for people with infectious diseases.  Hospital workers and healthcare providers must take extra precautions and wear protective clothing, bodysuits, gloves, boots, face masks and eye protection.
