Via CityNews Toronto: Brampton Civic hospital treating patient from Africa with flu-like symptoms. The full report:
A Brampton hospital is taking precautionary measures after a patient who recently travelled to Canada from Nigeria came down with a fever and other flu-like symptoms.
The patient arrived at the emergency department at William Osler Health System’s Brampton Civic Hospital earlier today.
“Osler sees and treats several patients a week with similar symptoms because of its proximity to the airport and over the last week, has put in heightened infection control protocols as a precautionary measure due to the emerging situation in West Africa,” the spokesperson said.
West Africa is currently dealing with an Ebola outbreak.
“Osler medical experts are working closely with Peel Public Health to confirm a diagnosis,” the hospital said.
