Ebola outbreak and local hospitals

ROCHESTER, Minn. – The deadly Ebola disease continues to kill hundreds in Africa but local hospitals are also preparing.

Those with the Mayo Clinic say they will be ready in case someone with symptoms of Ebola comes into their hospital. A doctor we spoke with says there is totally different healthcare in Africa and that could be leading to more infections. “That’s not really a situation that we would see in the United States. Our infection control policies are very good and we have far more robust capabilities within our hospitals for good infection control,”  Dr. Pritish Tosh said.

More than 1,600 people have been sickened in Africa with more than 900 dying.
