He weighed 220 lb. pre-Ebola, but lost 30
A doctor who contracted Ebola while treating patients in Sierra Leone and was evacuated to the U.S. for care in September revealed his identity in a report published Sunday.
Ian Crozier, who had been working with the World Health Organization in Kenema, told the New York Times that he explicitly kept his identity a secret to protect his family. Crozier, 44, is now recovering in Phoenix and working through a physical-therapy program.
One specialist admitted in the report that Crozier was the “sickest” patient that Emory University Hospital in Atlanta has seen thus far. He weighed 220 lb. pre-Ebola, but lost 30. The viral load in his blood was 100 times that of the facility’s other patients; he spent 12 days on a ventilator and was on dialysis for 24 days. :up: :applaud:
