NO EBOLA CASE IN DELAWARE


(Wilmington, DE) - October 18, 2014-Earlier this evening a Kent County health provider consulted with the Delaware Division of Public Health (DPH) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention regarding the need to test an ill child for Ebola. The child was initially isolated by the health care provider and a travel history was taken. The child and family had not traveled out of the country and had no exposure to someone from West Africa. As a result, an Ebola test was not necessary. The management of the case proceeded exactly as it should and DPH commends the health care provider, EMS, and 9-1-1 systems for their diligence and commitment to protecting the child and all Delawareans.

Delaware Health and Social Services is committed to improving the quality of the lives of Delaware's citizens by promoting health and well-being, fostering self-sufficiency, and protecting vulnerable populations. DPH, a division of DHSS, urges Delawareans to make healthier choices with the 5-2-1 Almost None campaign: eat 5 or more fruits and vegetables each day, have no more than 2 hours of recreational screen time each day (includes TV, computer, gaming), get 1 or more hours of physical activity each day, drink almost no sugary beverages. Delaware Health and Social Services is committed to improving the quality of the lives of Delaware's citizens by promoting health and well-being, fostering self-sufficiency, and protecting vulnerable populations.
