Spanish Nurse First to Contract Ebola Outside Africa
She only entered his room twice! Once when he was sick and once upon his death to collect belongings taking all necessary precautions!
A Nurse in Madrid was treating a Priest who had returned from (you guessed it – West Africa) where he’d contracted the Ebola virus. She was known as a sanitary nurse and now, despite huge precautions, has somehow contracted the virus. Locals say they think it could be going airborne. From the article about contracting Ebola in Madrid, Spain:
The elderly priest, Manuel Garcia Viejo, was treated in Madrid’s Carlos III hospital, where he had been in quarantine since his return from Africa. He died on Sept. 25. The nurse entered the priest’s room twice: Once to treat him and once upon his death, to recover his belongings, officials said. She began showing signs of illness on Sept. 30 and sought treatment, they said.
Health authorities said the nurse earlier had also helped treat another priest, Miguel Pajares, 75, who had been working in Liberia when he was afflicted with Ebola. He was airlifted back to Spain on Aug. 7 and died five days later.
“We are working to verify the exact source of contact to see if all strict protocols were followed,” Spanish Health Minister Ana Mato said at a news conference on Monday.
Thirty health-care workers who came into contact with the nurse will now be under observation for 21 days, Spanish health officials said.
So, let’s get this straight. The Spanish authorities are charging their tax payers to fly people with deadly infectious diseases BACK into their country just like the USA (I assume this is being done elsewhere as well) Now because of their genius move an innocent missionary working nurse is dead. This woman was trying to help.
She entered his room ONE TIME while he was in it and that was to treat him. She treated another priest also named Miguel (who they flew back WITH Ebola from Africa) but he died way back on August 7th. So either A) it sure can spread more easily than thought OR B) the incubation period is longer than 21 days.
Sadly there is no way to tell and this is worse than a science fiction movie, as, I cannot imagine in the movies governments would be so careless.
I’ve been writing about this for months and people said the Ebola people wouldn’t never infect others if flown back to their native land from African countries. They also said that we wouldn’t see people walking around the US with Ebola. Oh and folks said we certainly wouldn’t have hospitals turning people away from hospitals (like in Dallas Texas) but yes, the hospital said they screwed up and had a “communication breakdown” set the Liberian Ebola infected man home with antibiotics which his fiance’ (that’s been confirmed) claimed to Anderson Cooper made him worse. Big surprise.
Many write me asking how to take necessary precautions and I recommend articles like the one with natural remedies and precautionary guidelines on GreenMedInfo.com which will give you great insight into what to do. Because my belief is – don’t be scared, but you better be prepared.
