According to Deputy Health Minister Jaime Lazovski, this early-detection method has already been used successfully to test five different patients who had recently returned from Nigeria and who were showing symptoms consistent with Ebola. All five turned out to be false alarms.
In addition, Argentina’s Health Ministry has declared an “epidemiological alert,” and has established a national protocol for treating potential Ebola patients, Minutouno reported Oct. 14. National, provincial and municipal authorities are coordinating closely on preventive measures, detection, training of specialized medical teams and establishing specialty hospitals to treat Ebola patients.
