US issues new national guidelines for Ebola

  • After being criticized for a chaotic response in dealing with Ebola cases, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has come out with new guidelines to ensure better “health and safety of Americans,” according to media reports.

    Doctors, nurses, and health workers returning to the US after treating Ebola patients in west Africa are to be closely monitored for three weeks, the national guidelines say.

    Only those categorized as “high risk” would be quarantined in their homes, CDC director Tom Frieden said.
