Medical experts in Europe on high alert for Ebola

Ebola Outbreak

Some of the world’s top Ebola experts are gathering in Geneva to discuss a plan for developing drugs to treat the virus. So far, it is still contained to Africa.

The only confirmed case in Europe is a Spanish missionary who was medically evacuated from Liberia. There is one more case under investigation of a young man in Sweden who recently traveled to West Africa. CCTV America’s Jack Barton reports on the precautions being taken.
