Andy Harris Comments About First Diagnosed Case Of Ebola In The US
The first case of ebola has been diagnosed in the US. While this is concerning, it is important to remember a few things. Ebola currently spreads from direct contact with bodily fluids from a patient already sick with the virus, it does not spread through the air. Hospitals in the US have isolation units and the capacity to treat those with ebola. The CDC and health care providers are the best in the world and should be able to prevent significant spreading. Some drug treatments for ebola look promising, but the FDA must work with industry to remove red tape and quickly get safe treatments to patients.
