US Ebola patient had contact with kids: governor | Archaeology, Culture, Religion and Spirituality | Scoop.it

Washington (AFP) - A man who was diagnosed with the Ebola virus in Texas came in contact with young children, and experts are monitoring them for any signs of disease, governor Rick Perry said Wednesday.

"Today we learned that some school-aged children have been identified as having had contact with the patient and are now being monitored at home for any signs of the disease," Perry said at a news conference.

"I know that parents are being extremely concerned about that development," he added.

"These children have been identified and they are being monitored and the disease cannot be transmitted before having any symptoms."

First Ebola case diagnosed in the United States: CDC

First Ebola case diagnosed in the United States: CDC | Archaeology, Culture, Religion and Spirituality | Scoop.it

The patient sought treatment six days after arriving in Texas on Sept. 20, Dr. Thomas Frieden, director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), told reporters on Tuesday. He was admitted two days later to an isolation room at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas.

U.S. health officials and lawmakers have been bracing for the eventuality that a patient would arrive on U.S. shores undetected, testing the preparedness of the nation's healthcare system.

Frieden said a handful of people, mostly family members, may have been exposed to the patient after he fell ill. He said there was likely no threat to any passengers who had traveled with the patient. Asked whether the patient was a U.S. citizen, Frieden described the person as a visitor to family in the country.

Egyptian Mummy's Brain Imprint Preserved in 'Peculiar' Case

Egyptian Mummy's Brain Imprint Preserved in 'Peculiar' Case | Archaeology, Culture, Religion and Spirituality | Scoop.it

The mummy was recovered in 2010, along with more than 50 others in the Kom al-Ahmar/Sharuna necropolis in Egypt. [8 Grisly Archaeological Discoveries]

But unlike his neighbors in the field, the inside of this man's skull bore the imprints of his brain vessels, with "exquisite anatomical details," for centuries. The prints were cast into the layer of the preservative substances used during the mummification process to coat the inside of the skull.

The imprints appear to have been made by the blood vessels within the meninges, which is the membrane that covers the brain, the researchers said.
