Is the United States at risk for an outbreak of Ebola?
Amid the worst outbreak of the Ebola virus in recorded history, and with the second infected American scheduled to arrive in Atlanta tomorrow, there have been concerns that the disease could spread in the United States. However, despite the fear, there is very little risk of an outbreak resulting from bringing infected Americans home for treatment. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is prepared with quarantine centers all over the United States, as seen in the map above. In short, don't expect to see an Ebola patient in your ED anytime soon.
