Ebola Outbreak Map does not know if the president bodyguard staff, or the president of Congo employees were affected personally by Ebola virus, or if the employees are under Ebola virus monitoring in Washington DC or not. We can assume the probability of the employees being exposed to Ebola is likely given the fact that the staff are residents of Congo.
