Man In Texas Tests Positive for The Ebola Virus.

Yes you read correctly, Texas might be the next bus stop for an ebola outbreak.

CBS news:

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has confirmed the first case of Ebola virus diagnosed in United States. The patient, still not identified, had recently flown here from Liberia to visit family, officials said. He was admitted on Monday to an isolation unit at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas to be tested for Ebola after he began exhibiting symptoms.
"This is the first case of Ebola diagnosed in the U.S., and the first case of this strain of Ebola diagnosed outside Africa," Dr. Tom Frieden, director of the CDC, said at a news conference Tuesday evening.

      Though I do have faith that the U.S. is more advanced in it's healthcare and disease control system, and will without a doubt keep the virus under control, this is just a reminder to be cautious no matter where you are. Wash your hands frequently with anti bacterial soap and use hand sanitizer.  (never in place of soap and water).

Stay safe guys!!
