Ebola Bundibugyo, Friday Night Numbers

The Ebola Task Force daily briefing was tense and long. The death of a patient who was errantly admitted to the Female Ward of the Bundibugyo Hospital, later recognized as a Ebola supect, later confirmed and then died...after having exposed at least six health workers to the virus--has left the hospital and district anxious and angry. Current Cases: Bundibugyo Hospital, 5 - of which 3 are new admissions (no discharges, no deaths). Kikyo Health Unit, 4 - of which 1 is a new admission (no discharges, no deaths). Total Cumulative cases: 143 Total Deaths: 36 Case Fatality Rate: 25.2% Contacts: 667. 362 finished their 21 day follow-up. 240 visited today. Please continue to pray for an end to this scourge. PS Check out this trailer for the 20/20 feature this evening which may include Dr. Jonah (the trailer does!)... the ABCNews 20/20 trailer

It was so nice to see Jonah honored in the 20/20 piece. I cried and cried as I watched/listened to them share about our "friend". I'm thankful that his story was shared. What a remarkable guy.
