According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the risk of the Ebola virus spreading to the United States remains low. Still, many US healthcare stakeholders are now taking steps to ensure that the disease does not spread to state-bound Americans. So far, the disease—which kills 90% of people who become infected with it—has infected more than 1,200 people in 3 West African countries and killed an estimated 700 of them.
