Below is snippet from CNN. Full story on website.

"A 2-year-old girl in Mali has been diagnosed with Ebola, making her the West African country's first confirmed case, health officials said Thursday. The girl was brought to Mali from neighboring Guinea, where the outbreak this year is believed to have started, World Health Organization spokeswoman Yvette Bivigou said.

The girl, whose father died of Ebola, was taken to the hospital in Kayes after a nurse noticed she was suffering from what appeared to be Ebola-like symptoms. A test confirmed the girl has Ebola, Health Ministry spokeswoman Markatie Daou said".

Ugh, we just had a false alarm "possible Ebola" pt from the airport that was from Mali. CDC and ID docs said there was no reason to worry, and luckily it was a case of someone trying to avoid deportation.
