Johnston Nursing Home Worker Either Has The Flu…or Ebola

Cherry Hill Manor Employee Recently Returned From Nigeria. reports:

A worker at a Johnston nursing home with flu-like symptoms who recently traveled to Nigeria was taken to Rhode Island Hospital on Thursday.

The mayor said first responders wore protective suits as they transported the woman to the hospital.

Cherry Hill Manor was cleared by the state Health Department to return to normal operations after a short lockdown.

What makes Ebola so discomforting is that its symptoms do mimic the flu, at least until everything gets much worse very fast.



Anyway, it’s most likely nothing, but no sense in letting everyone’s paranoia go to waste.

[Update: As suspected, it’s not actually Ebola]
