At least 15 Americans were exposed to Ebola from a single, infected U.S. healthcare worker and have been brought back to the United States, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Tuesday.
They all work for Partners in Health, a nonprofit group that’s been helping fight the Ebola epidemic in West Africa.
Late last week, one person who was potentially exposed was brought to Atlanta to be near Emory University Hospital for observation.
Over the weekend, Partners in Health said 10 more of its staffers also might have been exposed to the often deadly virus when they were trying to help their sick colleague — who hasn’t been identified and who’s in critical condition at the National Institutes of Health outside Washington, D.C.
