Spanish Nurse First To Contract Ebola Outside Of Africa

Revelation 6:7,8 NCV When the Lamb opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature say, "Come!"8 I looked, and there before me was a pale horse. Its rider was named death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill people by war, by starvation, by disease, and by the wild animals of the earth.

For the first time, someone has been infected with Ebola outside the African continent.

A Spanish nurse who treated a missionary and priest returned from West Africa after contracting the virus has been confirmed to have the same strain of Ebola as the priest.

“We are working in coordination to give the best care to the patient and to guarantee the safety of all citizens,” Spanish Health Minister Ana Mato told reporters on Monday.  The nurse, whose name was not released, is reportedly in stable condition.

The woman’s husband and two others have been placed in isolation and at least two dozen others who had close contact with the woman are under observation by health officials.  The hospital where she worked is also examining any other health care workers that had contact with the priest.

Worldwide, at least 370 health care workers have been infected with the disease while treating patients connected to this outbreak.

Journalist Ashoka Mukpo, the fifth American known to have the virus, has arrived in Nebraska and is receiving treatment.  Mukpo said that he believes he was infected when he was splashed while spray-washing a vehicle where someone had died from Ebola.

The Dallas area infected patient, Eric Duncan, is in critical condition.
