CR Neighbors to Help Ebola Victims

Updated: Thursday, August 21 2014, 05:54 AM CDT
WASHINGTON, D.C. (CBS2/FOX28) - The World Health Organization is asking countries facing Ebola outbreaks to screen people who are leaving at all international airports, seaports and major land crossings.
The screenings would check for any unexplained illness or symptoms linked to the Ebola virus.
There is one person in California being treated for symptoms that look like Ebola but the CDC is still waiting on blood tests that would indicate whether they have it. 
Meanwhile, later today (Thursday) the Atlanta hospital that was holding two Americans infected with Ebola will be giving details about releasing them.
More than 1,300 people have now died from the virus.
To help, people in Cedar Rapids will be loading up a truck with supplies to send over to West Africa.
If you'd like to help out, just head to Neighborhood Church on 25th street at 9:30am.
