World Bank: More health care workers needed to fight Ebola in West Africa
A spokesperson for the World Bank says at least 5,000 more health care workers are needed in West Africa to fight the Ebola outbreak.
The president of the organization worries that there aren't enough health workers willing to fight the virus.
In the U.S., a 5-year-old boy taken to Bellevue Hospital in Manhattan who showed Ebola-like symptoms tested negative for Ebola, but he'll remain there for further tests.
Nurse Kaci Hickox, who treated Ebola patients in West Africa, left a quarantine in New Jersey Monday to return to her home in Maine. She says she agrees to remain in seclusion for the "next day or so." State health officials say they want her to be quarantined for 21 days.
Hickox's lawyer says the state should follow federal guidelines, which require monitoring, not quarantine for health care workers with no symptoms.
