Update on Ebola Patient
Statement by NYC Health and Hospitals Corporation President Dr. Ram Raju
This morning I talked to our patient and his doctors and nurses at Bellevue Hospital Center. The patient looks better than he looked yesterday, but he remains in serious but stable condition with the expected symptoms of the virus. He tolerated the plasma treatment well and had a good night sleep.
From his first day here, he expressed gratitude with the care he is receiving under the watchful eye of the dedicated, well trained and professional team of ICU physicians and nurses who are exclusively assigned to his care.
On behalf of our patient, I thank all New Yorkers for their prayers and well wishes. The entire HHC family and our expert team at Bellevue are committed to doing all we can to bring this brave, caring doctor back to good health.
