The authorities are somewhat relaxed now as the woman who was hospitalized with suspected Hendra virus has still not shown any symptoms of the deadly strain.
Medical facilities immediately hospitalized a woman a few days ago when they found that the foal, which she nursed at her hobby farm but died on the weekend, had tested positive for Hendra virus in its Wednesday's reports.
Thinking that it might have put the woman at risks of catching the deadly virus, she was urgently flown to Brisbane from Rockhampton to start her treatment.
Thankfully even after being exposed to the deadly Hendra virus, the woman has still not displayed any symptoms of the virus, which has calmed the medical officials bit.
In order to clear the doubts, professionals performed blood tests of the woman. Reports of the tests came on Friday afternoon and confirmed that the Rockhampton woman did not caught the virus and is showing no such symptoms. She will soon undergo periodic testing for more confirmed results.
Regarding the case, Queensland's Chief Health Officer Ms. Jeannette Young said on Saturday: "The patient remains in a stable condition in hospital. As I mentioned yesterday, the incubation period for Hendra virus infection in humans is 5-21 days".
