Americans fear pandemic as Ebola patients evacuate to Atlanta; CDC reassures risk of U.S. outbreak 'very low'
Georgia's Emory University is preparing to take in at least one of two Americans who contracted Ebola while working in Liberia. While the hospital and the Centers for Disease Control maintain the virus poses almost no threat to the U.S., many Americans — including Donald Trump — voiced concern on social media.

That was the message from health experts Friday after social media users erupted in fear over word that two Americans infected with the deadly Ebola virus were heading to the U.S. for treatment.
“I really think we should quell this uproar,” said Dr. Amar Safdar, associate professor of infectious disease and immunology at NYU Langone Medical Center.“People are saying all sorts of things, but none of it is true.”
The virus that is ravaging parts of West Africa triggered panic in the U.S. after officials revealed Thursday that two infected Americans were going to be treated at the Emory University Hospital in Atlanta.
At least 729 people in Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia and Nigeria have died, marking the deadliest Ebola outbreak in history.
