An American who was being checked in Nebraska after conceivably being presented to Ebola in the Democratic Republic of Congo was released from care on Saturday, having “never developed” the killer disease, the medical facility reported.
The unidentified health care provider, who’s as of now left the city of Omaha, doesn’t present a threat to general society, as per a news release from Nebraska Medicine.
SUSPECTED EBOLA PATIENT WAS FALSE ALARM, SWEDISH HOSPITAL SAYS
“This person completed the required 21-day monitoring period and did not develop symptoms of the disease,” Ted Cieslak, an infectious diseases specialist with Nebraska Medicine, said. “Because this individual was symptom-free throughout the monitoring period, it was determined they did not have Ebola, and therefore, were free to depart our facility and return home.”
Nebraska Medicine at first got the person for checking on Dec. 29, it previously said.
The unidentified individual had been in the Congo offering medical assistance at the time the potential exposure was thought to have perhaps happened, as per the facility.
Perception occurred in “a secure area” that neither the public nor patients had access to, Nebraska Medicine said.
