Canadian Man In Hospital in Saskatchewan With "Ebola-Like" Virus, Canadian Media Strangely Mute

Just googled this story.

Links at Daily Mail, BBC, and Fox News. 

Nothing on the Canadian media that I can see (yet??!?).

If someone has an "Ebola-like" virus, you would think that SOME (ANY?) Canadian media might want to mention it.

From the Daily Mail link:

"Health officials declined to say how long the man had been in Africa. However, the province's deputy chief medical examiner, Dr. Denise Werker, that the patient became sick after he returned to Canada."

"Haemorrhagic fever viruses - like deadly Ebola and Lassa Fever - can have an incubation period of up to 21 days, Dr. Welker said."

"There is no risk to the general public,' she said"


"We recognise that there is going to be a fair amount of concern and that is why we wanted to go public with this as soon as possible."
