Last week, the second patient diagnosed with Ebola was transferred from Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas to a hospital in Maryland. According to the CDC, the outbreak in West Africa is the largest Ebola outbreak in history, but only three cases have been confirmed in the U.S. at this time. Despite this information, claims of widespread Ebola in the U.S. and “Ebola zombies” have flooded the internet. For more information about Ebola, visit the CDC’s Ebola information page and make sure to evaluate the credibility of online sources before trusting reports about the virus.
