“Earlier today the patient who was flown back to the United States from Sierra Leone and admitted to the NIH Clinical Center on September 28 for observation, following a high-risk exposure to Ebola virus infection, was discharged to his home,” the release says.
“The patient has given NIH permission to release the following information: The high-risk exposure was a needle stick injury. The initial hospitalization was characterized by a brief period of fever that was subsequently determined to not be related to infection with Ebola virus. Because he had an exposure and a fever, there was a greater chance he had active infection, thus the reason for isolation.”
“Currently, the patient feels well and has no fever. CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) guidelines are being followed and the patient will remain in his home, check his temperature twice a day, until the completion of a 21-day observation period from the time of reported exposure. No additional details about the patient are available at this time,” NIH said.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the number or Ebola outbreak victims in West African countries has exceeded 3,500 people, and more than 7,500 have been infected. The majority of lethal cases have been recorded in three countries — Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea.
