  1. Journalist Gets Ebola, 100 Tracked in Texas

    An NBC cameraman is being sent back to the U.S. for treatment after contracting Ebola in Liberia, amid fears that the U.S. is ill-prepared for an outbreak of the deadly disease. Health authorities are monitoring some 100 people who came into contact with Thomas Duncan, 42, who was discharged from a Texas hospital while infected with the virus. A nurses’ union has criticized the U.S. government’s response, charging that if a strategy exists, “it’s not being shared” with caregivers.
