Oklahoma State Department of Health Reassures Public There is No Risk of Ebola to Passengers on Cruise Ship with Dallas Healthcare Worker
The Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH) wants to reassure passengers of the Carnival cruise ship Magic with a Dallas healthcare worker that there is no risk of contracting Ebola. The healthcare worker, who handled a laboratory specimen for an Ebola patient, remains symptom free 21 days after health monitoring began. This means the healthcare worker is cleared and does not have Ebola virus.
“It is understandable that the general public is concerned, but we want to assure Oklahomans that there is no risk of Ebola to those who were fellow cruise passengers and may have had contact with the Dallas healthcare worker,” said Dr. Terry Cline, Secretary of Health and Human Services and Commissioner of Health. “Oklahomans who were passengers on the cruise ship should continue normal daily activities such as going to work or school.”
The OSDH also reminds the public that the risk of exposure to Ebola virus is extremely low. Currently, large outbreaks of Ebola are only occurring in West Africa in the countries of Liberia, Guinea, and Sierra Leone. Ebola virus is not airborne and can only be transmitted by direct contact with the blood or body fluids of an infected person, or materials such as needles or medical gloves contaminated with the blood or body fluids of someone who is ill with Ebola virus disease.
Early symptoms of Ebola include headaches, abdominal pain and fever and can escalate to include severe diarrhea, vomiting, and bleeding. Respiratory symptoms such as a runny nose, coughing and sore throat are generally not symptoms of this disease.
“During this time of the year, many people will have sniffles, sneezes, and coughs,” said Dr. Kristy Bradley, State Epidemiologist, “but Oklahomans should not be concerned that these might be signs of Ebola. These symptoms are much more likely to be caused by allergies or a common respiratory virus, like RSV, rhinovirus, or influenza that sicken thousands of people in the US each year.”
“If someone has not traveled to the three impacted West African countries of Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone or if they have not come into direct contact with the body fluids of someone who has Ebola virus disease, they are not at risk of contracting Ebola,” said State Epidemiologist Dr. Kristy Bradley.
OSDH has established a web page with information on Ebola that is readily available to the public at http://ebola.health.ok.gov. The page is updated daily and interested persons can also subscribe to email and wireless updates that are sent when new information is added.
