HOUSTON, Texas -- A large group of people who had come in contact with Thomas Eric Duncan, the Liberian man who brought Ebola to the U.S., have been cleared of the virus by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The group of 43 people had been quarantined for 21 days by the City of Dallas and monitored twice daily. Amid the release, however, a new study questions whether the 21-day incubation period is long enough.
