NEW YORK (AP)- Health officials say four more medical aid workers have arrived back in the United States from West Africa to be monitored for Ebola.
Tuesday's arrivals bring to 16 the number of aid workers who have returned in the last week from Sierra Leone. None of them have been diagnosed with the disease.
All came in contact with a colleague who came down with Ebola last week while working in Africa for Partners in Health, a Boston-based international aid organization. He is in critical condition at a National Institutes of Health hospital in Bethesda, Maryland.
