Rhode Island health department officials do not expect to see any Ebola cases in the state. But they’re preparing anyway.
Rhode Island’s health department director Dr. Michael Fine says his agency knows how to handle an infectious disease outbreak. And one of the first lines of defense against Ebola includes health care workers and hospitals.
“What we’re trying to do is make sure that everyone understands what they have to do should a traveler come here from an endemic area," said Fine.
