The nurse who treated the first Ebola patient in the US has spoken out about the difficulties of caring for the patient who died.
In an interview with ABC News, Dr Michael Siegel said he had no idea how many people had been infected by the virus.
“We knew that there were a few hundred people that were infected, but there’s still a lot of questions that need to be answered,” Dr Siegel told ABC News.
“It’s been two weeks since we’ve had a patient, and so far we have a lot more people that we don’t know about, and we have more questions than answers.”
Dr Siegel, who worked at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta for several years, said he thought it was a good idea for patients to be tested and monitored.
“You want to get as many people as you can into your care, so we need to figure something out.
But I just don’t see the point in trying to do it on a daily basis, as opposed to a monthly basis,” he said.”
There’s no reason why you can’t do it at every time.
But there’s no way that you can be 100 per cent sure that you’re getting the correct number of people.”
In the same way that people in the West Coast are testing for HIV, and that’s not just the South, but in Australia, we’re testing for malaria, and all of these things are part of the same process.
“Dr Schilders comments come after Dr Sacher said he did not know how many patients were in isolation.”
That’s what we’re trying to get out of this.””
I don’t have any data.
That’s what we’re trying to get out of this.”
Dr Dyson said the hospital was also trying to determine how many doses of the drug were being given to the patients, and whether they were being monitored.
