A few weeks ago, Emory University Hospital was on lockdown.
As the lockdown was in effect, staff and students were unable to leave their dorms and offices.
As of this writing, only one person has been allowed to leave.
The hospital’s director of emergency services said that, as of Monday, no one has been admitted for a heart attack.
In the meantime, the school is on lockdown and students have been instructed to be cautious while walking to and from class.
The lockdown was put in place following the deadly outbreak of Ebola in the United States last month.
“We are going to try to do everything we can to help keep everybody safe,” director of operations and strategic planning Chris Johnson said on Tuesday.
The lockdown has left many people out of their homes and out of contact with loved ones.
The Emory Hospital’s website lists the number of students at the hospital, but it doesn’t give a breakdown on how many people are being admitted or cared for.
In a tweet posted earlier this week, Johnson said, “This morning we opened up a hospital for the first time since Ebola arrived at Emories campus.
I’m sure there will be some very hard times ahead for some of you.
Please keep those people in your prayers.”
Emory University says that it has had over 1,500 cases of the deadly virus.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the number who have died from the disease so far is 1,908.
In an effort to help spread the word about the lockdown, the university is hosting a live video chat to talk about the situation.
