Canadian Doctor Quarantines Himself Over Ebola Fears After Returning From Liberia
by Tyler Durden
Earlier today we wondered, rhetorically, if the CDC was wrong when it stated, with confidence, that there is “little risk” for the Ebola virus to leave the African continent, and cross the Atlantic, landing in North America. We may have gotten the official refutation less than 6 hours later, when moments ago Canada’s CTV reported that a Canadian doctor is in self-imposed quarantine after spending nearly a month in West Africa treating patients in the deadly Ebola outbreak that has claimed nearly 700 lives. “Dr. Azaria Marthyman of Victoria, B.C. was among a handful of Canadian health-care workers who traveled to Liberia, where the Ebola epidemic is currently raging. He was part of a North American team from the Christian relief organization Samaritan’s Purse.” This is the same charity organization whose two US citizen members were previously reported to have caught the virus.
