Health officials in Dallas are monitoring at least five children who came into contact with Thomas Eric Duncan while he was contagious with Ebola.
Investigators at the Centers for Disease Control are scrambling to locate any individuals in Dallas who came into contact with Duncan once he became ill and are now at risk for infection.
This is not the first time the U.S. has responded to an outbreak of a lethal virus like Ebola.
CNN's Athena Jones has the report.
