Patient with Ebola-like Symptoms in Kericho County Kenya

Following the Outbreak of Ebola in congo just a few days back, most of the East African countries have put in place different measures and the list of measures is endless. Check points which are gateways to most of the countries have been put in place. And the suspected individuals with any signs put in quarantines and through medical check up. Most of the East African countries have been able to contain the risk of the spread of ebola.

The woman in Kericho County, south-western Kenya put everyone to a doubt and immediate attention had to be observed. The kenyan patient was described before as a patient who had just fever, headache and joint pains. The situation later worsened as she developed sore throat and the consistent vomiting.

The Kenyan woman who was suspected to have Ebola signs was then rushed to the hospital in Kericho county. The woman had previously treated for malaria in a smaller hospital but her condition was getting worse. She was then re tested for malaria and the results were negative. This suppressed the health workers minds and had to immediately refer her to Kericho County Referral Hospital, which has an isolation unit.

Later, the woman developed Diarrhea and some abnormal reflections that required immediate attention. It has however been confirmed that her condition is now improving and that there is nothing to worry about. Her situation was easily contained, we are still waiting for her blood sample test findings from the trained Medical personnel in Nairobi.
