Minnesota officials in Ebola awareness push

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Minnesota health officials are trying to ease any fears about the possible spread of Ebola after an outbreak of the deadly disease in West Africa. The Minnesota Department of Health hosted a public information meeting attended by about 150 people in Brooklyn Center Wednesday night. Minneapolis suburbs are home to thousands of people with ties to Liberia, Sierra Leone and Ghana, the three countries most severely affected by the African outbreak. Health officials stress that the risk of Ebola being spread in the state remains ``very low.'' The state Health Department has sent several health alerts to health care providers on symptoms to watch for in patients who recently have traveled to West Africa. While there is no proven cure for Ebola, officials emphasize the disease is not spread through casual contact.
