REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – A hospital in a heavily Filipino populated area of Sacramento, Calif. says it is dealing with a possible case of Ebola.

Kaiser Permanente South Sacramento Medical Center says a patient was admitted and is in isolation as a precaution.

Hospital administrators say the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will be testing blood samples to rule out the presence of the virus.

The hospital is located just across the street from a shopping center that houses a Filipino-owned veterinary clinic, a Lucky Money remittance office, and a Filipino buffet that is patronized by the hospital’s Pinoy staff.

A Seafood City and Jollibee are also located just blocks away.

Four countries in West Africa are currently experiencing an outbreak of Ebola.

According to CDC, there have been more than 1,200 deaths from the virus in 2014. There are also 2,200 confirmed and suspected cases.

    CDC brought in to US the 2 American who were infected with Ebola. This is a contrary to the 101 rules on prevention of infectious disease, which is, Locate the source,Isolate, then Treat away from your home country which is not infected with Ebola. This is my opinion and the left from WH does not like this; our military scientist on infectious disease are so brilliant that they have the capability to capture the virus into a test tube and can multiply it, to create a bio-chemical welfare, which is a violation of Geneva Convention. Their cover is to make a vaccine for Ebola. That makes America great and powerful, you can wipe-out one country with a virus.
