People who were being screened for Ebola when they fled a health center during looting have turned themselves into a hospital, a Liberian official said Tuesday.The patients fled when an Ebola holding facility was ransacked in Liberia's capital, Monrovia, Saturday night, raising fears that the deadly virus might spread into the densely populated slum surrounding it. Information Minister Lewis Brown said Tuesday that the last 17 people who were missing have now turned themselves in to a treatment center at a major hospital in the capital.The people who fled have not yet been confirmed to have Ebola; they were in the holding center because they were at risk of having the disease.
