Оказывается, есть тайный пациент в Имори госпитале в Атланте, о котором никто никому не сообщал, а знали только госпиталь и правительственные службы. Little-mentioned patient at Emory expects to be discharged ‘very soon, free from the Ebola virus’ - The Washington Post
The Ebola-stricken aid worker arrived in Atlanta from West Africa on a specially equipped "air ambulance" Sept. 9. The patient was driven from the airport to Emory University Hospital, then whisked into a state-of-the-art isolation and treatment facility.
The hospital declined to release any further information, citing confidentiality policies. There was no mention of where or how this person had become infected, or who this person was working with in West Africa, or where the patient was from. The patient has never been identified publicly.
Emory also remained tight-lipped about how the patient was doing, declining for five weeks to provide any updates.
But on Wednesday, as health officials announced that an Ebola-stricken nurse would be transported from Dallas to Emory for treatment, the patient released a statement through the hospital.
“Given the national focus on Ebola, particularly with the diagnosis in two health-care workers, I want to share the news that I am recovering from this disease, and that I anticipate being discharged very soon, free from the Ebola virus and able to return safely to my family and to my community," said the patient, who asked Emory for continued anonymity.
"As a result of the virus, my condition worsened and I became critically ill soon after I arrived at Emory. Through rigorous medical treatment, skillful nursing, and the full support of a health-care team, I am well on the way to a full recovery.
anticipate sharing more information in future weeks as I complete my recovery.”
Emory, which expects to admit the Texas nurse Wednesday night, previously treated and discharged two patients who contracted Ebola while working on aid missions in Liberia. The hospital hasn't yet released any details about the current patient's treatment.
Лечится почти полтора месяца и пока еще не выписывается.
Интересно, это единичный случай "тайного" пациента с лихорадкой эбола в сша, или нет?
