Hazmat crew cleans quarantined Dallas apartment
DALLAS - Health care officials in Texas are making progress tracking down people who had direct or indirect contact with a Liberian man diagnosed with the Ebola.
The number of people is now 50, down from 100. All are being monitored and none have shown any symptoms of exposure to the often deadly virus.
A hazardous-materials crew has been working at the Dallas apartment where the man had been staying. It's believed to have been collecting items worn or used by the man. He's listed in serious but stable condition at a Dallas hospital.
The four people who live there -- a woman, her 13-year-old son and two nephews -- are confined under armed guard and can't have any visitors. They'll be monitored for weeks.
Meanwhile, NBC News says an American freelance cameraman working for the network in Liberia who tested positive for the virus and will be flown back to the United States, along with the rest of the news crew.
