U.S. experts hunt for Ebola exposure after first case

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Health experts are monitoring “a handful” of people who were potentially exposed to Ebola through physical contact with the first patient diagnosed with the deadly virus in the United States, the top U.S. public health official said on Wednesday.

Health officials confirmed the first case of the virus in the country on Tuesday, when a man who flew from Liberia to Texas tested positive for Ebola, which has killed more than 3,000 people in three countries in West Africa.
