Ebola in Belleville ?

Belleville General Hospital staff are taking all safety precautions with a possible Ebola case. A Canadian military man is being held in isolation while he is tested. Quinte Healthcare communications director Susan Rowe said in a press release, that although the man recently returned from West Africa and has some symptoms similar to those of the Ebola virus, it is highly unlikely he will test positive for the virus. Quinte Health Care chief of staff, and a nationally recognized inflection control expert, Dr. Dick Zoutman (PRO: ZOOT-man), added that the hospital will take the conservative approach and sending a sample out for testing at the National Microbiology lab in Winnipeg. The testing takes between 24 and 36 hours and the patient will remain in isolation in the meantime.
