Is China better than the U.S. at keeping out Ebola?

A case of Ebola has made its way to New York City.

A 33-year-old American physician who returned from working in the Ebola hot zone in West Africa about 10 days ago is now in isolation at Manhattan's Bellevue Hospital.

He was rushed to the hospital Thursday morning with a 103-degree fever, nausea, pain and fatigue. Of major concern: an official tells CNN the doctor was out in public last night, taking an Uber cab to a bowling alley in Brooklyn.

The doctor appears to have followed CDC guidelines, which state travelers from West Africa self-monitor for Ebola symptoms, but in this case, after directly treating Ebola patients, should he have been forced to self-quarantine?

The case raises further questions about whether the U.S. is doing enough to stamp out epidemics. Can the U.S., for instance, learn anything from China's draconian measures?

Ferguson bracing for protests in case of no indictment

The city of Ferguson, Missouri is bracing for another round of violent protests now that new evidence could acquit the officer who shot unarmed teen Michael Brown.

Law enforcement sources tell CNN that Brown's blood was found on the gun, uniform, and car belonging to Officer Darren Wilson.

This new evidence may support Wilson's account that he fired in self-defense, but it draws anger and suspicion from local activists.
