Chicago is prepared to handle Ebola Virus

Experts from the Illinois Department of Health, Rush University Medical Center and the C.D.C have a strategy in place if someone arrives in a Chicago airport infected with the ebola virus.


"We have checkpoints for instance at Chicago O'Hare, so if someone comes in, we have a quarantine center there. Again, we'll coordinate with C.D.C.," said Dr. Lamar Hasbrouck from the Illinois Department of Public Health.

 

Health officials stress the risk of getting the ebola virus is highly unlikely because it can only be transmitted by contact with bodily fluids.


Hospitals are also making sure they are able to handle an outbreak.
