TX College Rejects Nigerian Applicants, Cites Ebola! Dallas warns more cases possible!
Political leaders warned Wednesday that there could be more cases of Ebola here in coming days, after a second health-care worker at a Texas hospital tested positive for the virus.

The worker “reported a fever Tuesday and was immediately isolated at the hospital,” the Texas Department of State Health Services said in a statement.

She was among those who treated Thomas Eric Duncan, a Liberian man who was diagnosed with Ebola at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas on Sept. 30, and died last Wednesday.

At least two students from Nigeria who applied to a Texas college were told they wouldn't be admitted because of Ebola.

The college rejected the applications, citing confirmed Ebola cases in the country as the reason for the admissions decision.

Why Protective Gear Is Sometimes Not Enough in the Fight Against Ebola. Human error can endanger even the most experienced health care workers in the fight against Ebola

When it comes to Ebola, the full-body Personal Protective Equipment [PPE] suit is probably the best way to prevent infection. But a PPE can also be one of the easiest ways to get Ebola. A PPE is usually made up of a full-body, impermeable suit with a hood, rubber boots covered by Tyvek booties, multiple pairs of surgical gloves, a surgical mask over the nose and mouth, a plastic bib, goggles, a plastic apron and a lot of duct tape. There is a reason why they are nicknamed moon suits: worn properly, they shouldn’t show an inch of skin. Putting them on right requires two people and about 10 minutes. Taking them off, in even the best of circumstances, is a clumsy, arduous process with multiple opportunities to make a lethal mistake

A phone conference Tuesday for Emory University and University of Nebraska officials to share what they had learned had little relevance for some smaller hospitals


Physicians who are treating patients with the Ebola virus at Emory University Hospital and the University of Nebraska Medical Center shared their advice and protocols with worried hospitals and health care providers over a phone conference on Tuesday. Whether the conference really quelled these fears, however, was not exactly clear.

The intent of the conference, which was organized by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), was to answer health care questions related to admitting and treating a patient with Ebola. There’s growing concern among health officials that hospitals without specialized isolation units and with little experience treating serious communicable diseases may not be fully prepared to treat the disease. “We don’t want to have to face another person or family that ends up getting infected because we are not as good as we should be in treating patients,” Karen Higgins, co-president of National Nurses United (NNU) told TIME

Health officials on Friday recommended the use of Ebola survivors’ blood to treat those suffering from an outbreak of the deadly disease in West Africa.

The use of blood was one method on a long list of experimental treatments suggested at the conference. RNA-based treatments and pre-existing drugs designed for other diseases were among the other potential options.

Experts said it will take time to produce more ZMapp and another promising vaccine that could stem the spread of Ebola, which has already killed more than 2,000 people in West Africa. The Obama Administration has asked Congress to provide funds to accelerate the development of ZMapp.
