natsMore than half of the nation, including D.C., is begging the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for more information about how to spot potential cases of Ebola. According to ABC News, the CDC has received nearly 70 requests since late July from states seeking guidance about whether or not to conduct blood tests on suspected Ebola victims. A color map published by Breitbart reveals that nearly all of the most populated states in the U.S., including California, Texas, Illinois and New York, have inquired with the CDC about what to look for and how to deal with individuals who might have the viral disease. The CDC has reportedly ruled out the vast majority of these without blood tests, but at least 10 cases have warranted further examination. Reports indicate that hospitals in 27 states have alerted the CDC about at least 68 potential Ebola cases since July 27. Of these, 58 were declared false alarms, and the remaining 10 had their blood sent in for lab testing. Of these 10, seven samples tested negative for Ebola, according to experts, and the remaining three are “pending.” The locations of all the suspected cases remain a secret. As to why the CDC only tested 10 of the 68 cases, an agency spokeswoman told reporters that there is no reason to believe that these cases are actually Ebola, because the patients involved had not traveled to infected areas, even if they had traveled to countries where Ebola is currently spreading. By simply discarding these cases, claims the CDC, the agency can focus on higher priority cases. “If somebody had traveled to Guinea and came back and had a fever and has never been to a place where Ebola is transmitted, there’s no reason to suspect there’s Ebola just because Ebola is circulating in Guinea,” claimed CDC spokeswoman Kristen Nordlund, as quoted by ABC News.
