    Curtis Thomas of the Hermann Area District Hospital.

    “Should I be concerned about Ebola?” a friend of mine recently asked.  I thought that was a fair question since we now have the first documented case in the United States, so I did some research on the subject with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO).  Here’s what I found out: The Ebola virus is a member of the Filovirus family and
