Ebola Outbreak US Worry

Ebola Outbreak US Worry, An outbreak of Ebola in West Africa may seem like a distant threat to many Americans, but it is causing some to cancel travel plans and stirring fear in Minnesota, which has the largest Liberian immigrant population in the United States.
The potentially Ebola-related death last week of a Liberian government official whose wife and children live in Minnesota has heightened concerns and inspired a fundraising drive to send medical supplies to Liberia. State health officials also have been meeting with community members to talk about recognizing the disease and how to travel safely.
More than 670 people have died during the recent outbreak in West Africa. But no cases of Ebola have been confirmed in the United States, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Monday it poses little risk to the general U.S. population.
“It is killing people like crazy,” said Prudence McCabe, a Brooklyn Park resident of Liberian heritage. “Everyone is trying to call family members … we are trying to send money right away. … All we can do is pray and be helpful.”
