Chicago Hospitals Monitoring 2 Sick Passengers From Liberia, CDC Not Testing For Ebola

Zero Hedge

Just when you thought it was safe to BTF-Ebola-Is-Fixed-Dip… ABC7 Chicago reports, two unrelated passengers (one child – vomiting, no fever; one adult – nausea, diarrhea, no fever) originating from Liberia became ill en route to O’Hare International Airport. The two patients are being monitored in isolation at The University of Chicago Medical Center and Rush University Medical Center but based on the latest reports and risk exposures (from the Chicago Ebola Resource Network), the CDC has determined not to test them for Ebola… (perhaps they are waiting for Ron Klain to start work tomorrow to give them the go-ahead).

“City and hospital officials are working closely with the CDC to continue monitoring,” officials noted.


Ambulances wait at Rush University Medical Center
