CDC Issues New Ebola Guidance for Labs; NYC Man Tests Negative for Ebola
By Amy Orciari Herman
The CDC on Thursday issued interim guidelines for U.S. laboratory workers and other healthcare personnel on appropriate collection, transport, and testing of specimens from patients who are suspected to be infected with Ebola virus.
Among its recommendations, the CDC says that personnel collecting or testing specimens should wear a full face shield or goggles, a mask that covers all of the nose and mouth, gloves, and fluid-resistant or impermeable gowns.
In addition, the CDC's director told Congress that he activated the agency's emergency response center at the highest level of alert.
In other Ebola news, the New York City patient who underwent testing for Ebola earlier this week has tested negative, the New York Times reports.
As of Aug. 6, Ebola virus had infected 1711 people in West Africa, claiming 932 lives, according to the latest numbers from the World Health Organization.
