Teresa Romero[edit]

In: "2014 Ebola spread outside of West Africa

Main articles: Ebola virus cases in the United States, Ebola virus disease in Spain and Ebola virus disease in the United Kingdom

As of 15 October 2014, there have been 17 cases of Ebola treated outside of Africa, four of whom have died.[128]

In early October, Teresa Romero, a 44-year-old Spanish nurse, contracted Ebola after caring for a priest who had been repatriated from West Africa. This was the first transmission of the virus to occur outside of Africa.[129] On 20 October, it was announced that Teresa Romero had tested negative for the Ebola virus, suggesting that she may have recovered from Ebola infection.[130]"

I think we must add this, o some like this:

Finally on November 1st Teresa Romero leaves the isolation room because doctors considered that there was no risk of infection of the disease. [1]

While the heading hints at the start of a possible world-wide outbreak, the text presents another picture. For, as of 15 October 2014, there have been 17 cases of Ebola treated outside of Africa, "four of whom have died". Should not the heading be deleted, or made to reflect that risk of catching Ebola outside of Africa is very, very low? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 80.44.105.37 (talk) 20:08, 20 June 2015 (UTC)

Q[edit]

"Further to the reference, under abstract results, wouldn't an infected person produce antibodies against the virus, even if they were injected with a vaccine (for a different virus string)" was asked on the article page.

Not sure to what you refer User:Mattmill30? Or what change you propose. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 23:20, 9 June 2015 (UTC)

Ebola: The world-wide outbreak that never was[edit]

Wikipedia is not censored - and we are all Charlie now[edit]

Any attempts to Talk about fear and Ebola have been "blocked at every turn. Beautifully synchronized - don't you agree?" — Preceding unsigned comment added by 78.150.53.161 (talk) 19:12, 27 June 2015 (UTC)
