Ebola monitoring in Michigan

The Michigan Department of Community Health is now monitoring the health of ten people around the state for the Ebola virus. The number increased by two overnight. Officials say none of them has shown any signs of the virus, and the state will not identify which counties they are in. They declined to give any details about who the people are or how they may have been exposed. DCH spokeswoman Jennifer Smith says the cases involve individuals who were in countries with widespread Ebola transmission within the last 21 days but that to her knowledge, they have not had direct contact with anyone who has Ebola or been symptomatic. Guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say anyone who has any risk of exposure to Ebola should be actively monitored for 21 days, even without showing symptoms.  (MRN)
