Kansas Forms Ebola Team

(AP) – Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback has ordered the creation of a special team to respond quickly to any suspected Ebola cases in the state.

The governor’s office also wants to come up with $4 million that could be used in an emergency and is calling on the federal government to provide an emergency cleanup team and federal disposal of Ebola-related waste.

Brownback says in a news release he also has ordered the Kansas Department of Health and Environment to develop a plan for the state that includes stronger rules on protective gear and isolation than what the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention requires.

Kansas has had no confirmed cases of Ebola.
