How to use your computer to avoid getting Ebola: The easy, easy way
A public health alert on Thursday advised people to avoid using computers for more than three hours at a time, while they are at home or in their cars.
“I’m afraid the virus has spread to a lot of other parts of the world, including in this part of the US, where I live,” said Jennifer Fauci, an Atlanta resident who is infected.
Fauci has tested positive for Ebola and is in the hospital in Atlanta.
Her family has flown to Dallas, Texas, and she’s been isolated at the hospital for five days.
She has been taking two different antimalarial medications, a drug called Daraprim, and a medication called Rifampin, a combination of Rifronate and Rifabutin.
Faucs family members are asking that people who have recently traveled to Texas or other states to get tested for the virus.
“If you have been in the US and haven’t been tested, get tested immediately.
If you’ve been in contact with someone in the United States who has been infected, I’m afraid you are going to get the virus,” Fauces mother, Joanne Faucus, told CNN.
Faulces mother said her daughter was in Texas at the time of her illness.
She said she was at her daughters home in the Atlanta suburb of Alpharetta, where her daughter had been staying.
“We’re here right now.
I don’t know if I can stay,” she said.
She told CNN she has never been to Dallas before, but she believes she could be exposed to Ebola.
Fausci said her husband, a truck driver, recently returned from a trip to Liberia.
She said they’re still in quarantine at their home in Atlanta and are still in contact.
She’s worried that the virus could spread through her home.
“Our house is a quarantine area,” she told CNN, adding that her husband works at a factory in Atlanta, so she was not in the best position to be in contact or stay at home.
She is worried about her family members and the people she knows.
“My daughter, who’s my best friend, who I love, has been in isolation.
I’m worried for her and the rest of her family,” she added.”
The fear is the virus is going to spread from here.”
Fauces husband said he’s been in Liberia since March.
He said he went to Liberia because of his brother’s condition and he didn’t know any of the people in Liberia.
“It’s a huge concern for us,” he said.
“I’m not sure what to do.
We don’t have the resources to be able to stay at our home in Georgia.
It’s not like there’s anyone who is going through it at home.”
Fausces daughter, the only child in her family, was infected in Atlanta earlier this week.
Her father said his daughter tested positive and is at the Atlanta hospital.
Faunces mother and daughter were both in Liberia when she contracted Ebola.
“She had her first case of Ebola when she got to Liberia,” Faunces said.
Fusci said she hasn’t been able to go outside to exercise since her infection.
She is currently in quarantine.
She doesn’t know what to expect when she arrives in Dallas.
“How will I feel when I get there?
I’m not used to being in quarantine,” she asked.”
People are afraid.
People are not doing their jobs.”
She said her family has been working to keep up with medical supplies at her home and they have received more than 400 doses of antimalaria pills.
She also asked that people stay away from any places where they are likely to get Ebola.
