Confirmed Ebola Case

Well, this is news that I didn't want to have to give......one of the suspected Ebola cases reported at Waterloo Hospital has tested positive.
 
All staff that had contact with the patient will be quarantined for 21 days.
 
The staff are very scared. Some staff will be relieved and a skeleton staff will remain to maintain the hospital until the crisis is over.
 
Apart from the risk of Ebola their other main worry is how they will manage to pay wages during this period. There were few enough patients already, but as news of this spreads there will be even fewer - no patients means there is no money to pay staff salaries.

Lets pray that all those quarantined remain healthy
