Woods: Stay inside

Zoë Woods

The seriousness of Ebola has become higher in the fore front of discussion with recent events surrounding the virus. The number of cases are growing, and it doesn’t seem to be slowing down. In fact, it appears to be speeding up.

Now, there are more and more cases getting reported in the United States. The Centers for Disease Control is trying to do its best to protect the American people without infringing on their rights, but it becomes a battle when there isn’t any cooperation on the patient side of the issue.

According to the CDC:

-There have been three confirmed cases

-10 contacts are under surveillance

-For possible exposure, there are currently 76 contacts

-89 contacts that have possibly been exposed are under surveillance

-There is a total of 176 people that are possibly exposed and are under surveillance

It is unclear the total number of possible exposure contacts because data is still in progress, meaning there may be more.
