The possibility is there especially when Police cars were escorting the ambulance to the Hospital

 

That large convoy of Ambulances/Police passed someone I know at 5.45 pm ... Going towards Commercial Sq via the ringroad.

Must have been the worst case of diarrhoea in history to get that response ...

 

Isn't the usual advice to keep away from the hospital if you have this stuff? As you just end up spreading it about there?

Excuse the pun but to me that's a load of crap.You don't have four police cars escorting an ambulance to the hospital because someone has the sh**s

Hereford Times News 18th November 2014
BREAKING NEWS Update:

 
PUBLIC Health England has confirmed tests for Ebola are being carried out on a patient at Hereford County Hospital with a history of travel to West Africa.
 
Hereford's walk-in GP Centre at Asda was shut down yesterday afternoon after a patient presented with what is being described as 'potentially contagious symptoms'.
 
The patient was transferred to Hereford County Hospital earlier yesterday evening and is now being treated in line with standard infection control guidelines.
 
A spokesman for Public Health England said: "Ebola is considered very unlikely but testing is being done as a precaution.
 
"Based on the evidence-based risk assessment protocol, we are confident that all appropriate actions are being taken to ensure there is no risk to public health.
 
"It is important to remember that as yet, there has never been a case of Ebola diagnosed in the UK and the infection can only be transmitted through contact with the bodily fluids - such as blood, vomit or faeces - of an infected person.
 
"We have advised all front line medical practitioners dealing with patients to be alert to signs and symptoms of Ebola in those returning from affected areas. Following such advice we would expect to see an increase in testing.
 
"Should there be a positive case in the UK, this information will be made available to the public."
 
The walk-in centre has reopened this morning.

STATEMENT FROM WYE VALLEY NHS TRUST - 1 hour ago.

 

" Patient has undergone tests, all appropriate action has been taken and there is no risk to public health. As far as our patients are concerned, its a case of business as usual".

As a local councillor I have asked Health England for information about this they have said they will contact me again this afternoon with an update on the situation. It has not been confirmed that what the patient is suffering from is Ebola!!!

The chances of ebola are extremely slim, it just sounds like they are being cautious that's all. I can't imagine them closing the hospital even if someone did have ebola, after all, the hospital is the place everyone goes to to be ill, it's to be expected there. Sounds like a lot of rumour and speculation to me
