Spanish nurse contracts Ebola Virus! Despite wearing a safety suit
Hmm…Ebola! A Nurse, “Teresa Romero Ramos” has being reported to have contracted the “Ebola disease,” in Spain today, October 7th, 2014. Reports says she was given “inadequate protective clothing,” which she wore while caring for an Ebola victim. It is believed now that the “safety suit” may not be relied on for protection against the deadly disease.
Four suspected Ebola patients are now in hospital in Madrid after the nurse was confirmed as the first person to catch the virus outside of West Africa. The escalation in Spain’s Ebola outbreak comes as officials revealed 30 people were being monitored for symptoms, including the woman’s husband, Javier Limon Romero. Meanwhile the World Health Organisation warned that it is “unavoidable” more cases will be diagnosed in Europe. WHO’s European director Zsuzsanna Jakab said further such events were “unavoidable”.
