How the CPS school system is covering the deadly Ebola outbreak

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services have been scrambling to keep up with the Ebola outbreak, and the media has been playing a big part.

The AP reported Tuesday that the CDC and the National Institutes of Health are now working on a plan to ensure the health and safety of students in schools.

In the meantime, the Associated Press has reported that the government is funding more than 1,000 schools to be equipped with extra medical equipment and more testing rooms.

ABC News has also reported that an American-made, high-tech Ebola vaccine, developed by a University of Texas School of Medicine doctor, is being tested in classrooms and at health care clinics.

More than 1 million Americans have been exposed to the virus.
