Dead Ebola Doctor Misdiagnosed

by
A doctor killed by the Ebola virus may have been misdiagnosed. Dr Martin Salia, the surgeon from Sierra Leone tested negative for Ebola twice. Now, false negatives are common in Ebola’s early stages. That’s why a second test is often recommended. The delay in diagnosis proved deadly. Doctors say Salia was already unresponsive and in kidney failure when he arrived the Nebraska Medical Center. He failed to respond to interventions, that included the experimental drug ZMapp and a blood transfusion from any Ebola survivor.
