Yeah, but Ebola-like is also flu-like, cold-like, etc.
from the article:
Doctors Without Borders said in a statement that the patient being tested had recently worked in an Ebola-affected country in West Africa with the humanitarian organization.

What a jerk. If you know you were exposed, its the height of cruelty to go about exposing others.

Call me a monster, but they should shoot him dead and burn his body. We don't need to put our doctors and nurses at risk.
