UPDATE:::: 18h 55m HST/EDT:::: Doctor David Reich President and CEO of Mount Sinai Hospital, “Odds are it’s not ebola.”

A hospital spokeswoman, Dorie Klissas, said that to protect the patient’s privacy the hospital was not making public his occupation, which country he had been in, whether he had been exposed to a patient with Ebola there, or whether he had close contacts like family members, friends or co-workers who were also at risk. Ms. Klissas said the patient’s blood was being tested for Ebola, but she declined to say when the test results would be available.

    If they don’t yet know whether it’s Ebola, they shouldn’t be reporting on it. Anything for a goddamned scoop.

    • Hez it is important that everyone know the facts about this disease and we here will do all we can to get those facts out. Public health issues need to be brought to the forefront in the media in the interest of keeping the public informed. The public also need to know that those tasked with keeping watch out for those showing symptoms are being screened and if necessary isolated.

    I agree, Diane; however, they don’t have the facts yet and should wait until they do before reporting on something that may cause panic.
