There is NO reason, NONE to bring Ebola patients to other countries (well, except the obvious one of spreadint it around.) All of these things can be treated in the country of origin. Far cheaper to fly in a bit of medical equipment then to fly the ebola patient to foreign countries and expose others. All the hospitals have to set up quarantine areas, hazmat suits, etc
BERLIN — A 56-year-old man who had been working with the United Nations in Liberia died overnight at the hospital in Leipzig where he was being treated for Ebola, the hospital said Tuesday in a statement quoted by the German news media.
The brief statement gave no further details. The man was the third patient to arrive in Germany in recent weeks for treatment of Ebola, and the first to die.
The first patient, a Senegalese man who worked for the World Health Organization, was treated in Hamburg from late August until Oct. 3, when he was released. He has since returned home. The second patient, a Ugandan doctor who was working in West Africa for an Italian aid organization, continues to receive treatment at a hospital in Frankfurt.
The St. Georg clinic in Leipzig, where the man who died was treated, announced his arrival last Thursday in a statement. At the time, doctors said his condition was critical, but stable, and there were no further updates on his status.
The hospital gave assurances that the third patient would be safely isolated. “There is no risk of infection for other patients, relatives, visitors or the public,” Dr. Iris Minde, the chief executive of the clinic, said in a statement when the patient was admitted. Dr. Minde said the clinic followed the “strictest hygienic protocols according to latest standards.”
Dr. Thomas Grünewald, a senior physician at the Clinic for Infectious Diseases and Nephrology at the hospital, said the patient would be tended around the clock by at least one doctor and a nurse “in protection suits.”
