The person reported developing symptoms several days after the return flight.

  • 感染者を搬送した救急車は基準に従い搬送直後に消毒された。搬送したパラメディックたちは隔離された。

リベリアから感染者が入国したナイジェリアよりも、米国は迅速に対応している。そのナイジェリアもWHO (2014/10/01)によれば、感染者20名(うち死亡者8名)にとどまっている。また、ギニアから感染者が入国したセネガルも、その入国者からセネガル人への感染は起きていない。今のところ、米国ダラスのエボラの事態は特に深刻な状態にはない。

This is NOT a real thing. As Snopes points out, it’s a satire piece created by “This Is That” a podcast produced by CBC. The satire was lost on many people as it was shared unscrupulously on social media. In fact, Lana Newstrom doesn’t even exist.

我々がこの手のジョークに引っかかるのは別に奇異なことではない。しかし、期せずして、我々がいかに金持ちを嫌っていて、笑いものにしたがっているかを示したと、Jonathan Jonesは指摘する。
So, given that if anything Lana Newstrom’s art is a bit staid and behind the times, it is not so strange that people were fooled by the hoax. On the other hand, what they took from it is revealing. It shows how much we hate the rich.
If only it were. I want to see those rich art snobs suffer, too. But not only is this story a hoax – it also appears to be untrue that collectors will pay a fortune for the non-existent. For when Christie’s tried to auction Creed’s Work No 127: The Lights Going On and Off for £70,000 earlier this year it did not sell.

A Texas hospital patient has tested positive for Ebola, making the patient the first case diagnosed in the United States. The test was conducted at the state public health laboratory in Austin. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention confirmed the positive result.

The patient is an adult with a recent history of travel to West Africa. The patient developed symptoms days after returning to Texas from West Africa and was admitted into isolation on Sunday at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas.

テキサスの病院の患者がエボラ検査で陽性となり、米国で最初の症例となった。検査はAustinの州公衆保健ラボで行われた。CDCは陽性の結果を確認した。患者は成人で、西アフリカへの最近の渡航歴がある。患者が西アフリカからテキサスに到着して数日後に症状が現れ、DallasにあるTexas Health Presbyterian Hospitalに2014/09/28に隔離された。

"An individual traveling from Liberia has been diagnosed with Ebola in the United States," Thomas Frieden, director of the CDC, said in a conference call Tuesday afternoon.

This person who is infected left Liberia on Sept. 19 and arrived in the U.S. the following day with no symptoms. They began showing symptoms four days after arriving in the U.S.
"The bottom line here is that I have no doubt that we will control this importation, or this case of Ebola, so that it does not spread widely in this country," he said. "It is certainly possible that someone who had contact with this individual could develop Ebola in the coming weeks. But there is no doubt in my mind that we will stop it here."

「リベリアに渡航した人物が米国でエボラと診断された」と2014/09/30午後のCDCのThomas Friedenセンター長の記者会見で述べた。
