    Even though Amber Vinson has been declared Ebola-free, and has left Emory University Hospital, if this nation is to quarantine those (be they symptomatic or asymptomatic) who came into contact with someone like Thomas Duncan, then should those who have come into contact with Amber Vinson (be it on day 1 to the day she left the hospital) be quarantined? If Kaci Hickox is "obviously ill," per Chris Christie, then she would obviously be symptomatic according to Chris Christie. If she is symptomatic, then Chris Christie would not only have to quarantine her, but anyone who came into contact with...

The recovery of Amber Joy Vinson, who became infected with the virus while caring for Liberian patient Thomas Eric Duncan in a Dallas hospital, leaves only one person in America known to have an active case of Ebola. That is Craig Spencer, the doctor who became feverish on Thursday in New York and was immediately transported to Bellevue Hospital. He remains isolated in what health officials have described as serious but stable condition....

    Health officials in Ohio are monitoring more than 100 people following the visit by a Dallas nurse who tested positive for Ebola shortly after returning to Texas from the Cleveland area.
