Officials: ‘About 100′ people may have had contact with the Texas Ebola patient

Let's hope noone else was infected, and ignore the scary headline. It is rather hard to become infected with ebola, typically requiring exchange of fluids with someone who's exhibiting symptoms.

"We are working from a list of about 100 potential or possible contacts and will soon have an official contact tracing number that will be lower," Texas Department of State Health Services spokeswoman Carrie Williams said in a statement. "Out of an abundance of caution, we're starting with this very wide net, including people who have had even brief encounters with the patient or the patient's home. The number will drop as we focus in on those whose contact may represent a potential risk of infection."
