Health experts are monitoring "a handful" of people who were potentially exposed to Ebola through physical contact with the first patient diagnosed with the deadly virus in the United States, the top American public health official said Wednesday.Health officials confirmed the first case in the country Tuesday, when a man who flew from Liberia to Texas tested positive for Ebola, which has killed more than 3,000 people in three countries in West Africa.The health care workers will be closely monitored for the next 21 days, the time it can take for symptoms of the hemorrhagic fever to appear.The patient in the U.S. who was not identified for privacy reasons arrived in Texas on Sept. 20 and first sought treatment six days later, according to the CDC.
