British man dies of Ebola-like disease in Macedonia – second man placed in isolation, hotel staff quarantined

October 2014MACEDONIAPeople arriving in the UK from areas hit by Ebola face “enhanced screening” for the virus at Heathrow, Gatwick and Eurostar terminals. Downing Street said passengers would be asked questions and potentially given a medical assessment. It comes as Whitehall sources say it is “very unlikely” a British man who died in Macedonia on Thursday could have contracted the disease. The UK Foreign Office had said it was urgently investigating the reports. The unnamed man was admitted to hospital at 15:00 local time (14:00 BST) and died two hours later, Macedonia’s Health Ministry said. A British man suspected of contracting the Ebola virus has died in Macedonia, a senior Macedonian government official confirmed, adding that the victim is thought to have travelled from Britain. The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told Reuters a second Briton had also shown symptoms of the virus. He said the two had been staying at a hotel in the capital Skopje and that hotel staff and the ambulance crew that took them in for treatment had been put into isolation.
He had been vomiting, had a fever and was bleeding internally. There were “high chances” it was not an Ebola case, the ministry added. But in a statement it said officials had followed World Health Organization procedure in closing the hotel where the man was staying and placing the residents in quarantine. A Macedonian government spokesman said the man’s travelling companion – also British – told the authorities they had travelled directly from the UK to Skopje and had not been to any affected areas. Dr Brian McCloskey, from Public Health England, said he was aware of the reports but added: “We understand Ebola to be unlikely as the cause of death but will continue to work with partners to investigate.” The outbreak has already killed more than 3,000 people and infected more than 7,200 – mostly in West Africa. People leaving areas affected by the outbreak have been subject to checks for some weeks, although people do not become infectious until they display symptoms. Earlier this week a Spanish nurse became the first person to contract the deadly virus outside of West Africa. –BBC, Channel 4

    My advice would be:- any passenger on the plane who is known to have flown into UK from Africa, can be temperature checked BEFORE the flight takes off and anyone who reports being ill on flight, the flight should be detoured to a non major airport terminal, so that quarantine can take place at the airport. So start setting up quarantine facilities world wide for this, at smaller airports, so diseases are kept contained. Too little is being done in preventative care -its going to happen, because no body is willing to make the huge sacrifices for it. Human life comes before money. REMEMBER that.

    The people in power think they are so insulated from Ebola that they can do what they want to. From my reading of the past two weeks on Ebola the actions taken by the US and the EU always seem to be a day late and a dollar short. They do not seem, at lest, from their actions to understand that Ebola can not be intimidated, brought off or deal making with. This is a killer of humans with only one purpose reproduce itself.

    Our leaders and their advisors lack one of the first gifts of the Holy Spirt WISDOM.

    I wonder if they will do an autopsy on the guy or just drop him into a grave somewhere and not worry about what actually did him in. My money is on – that they don’t do one.
