Tampa International develops Ebola plan

As the Ebola virus spreads, and more potential cases are being examined in the U.S., some people wonder if they could be next.

Especially passengers, where many of the people quarantined now for Ebola-like symptoms are travelers on airplanes.

10 News discovered over the weekend that Tampa International Airport had no plan in place to treat an infected passenger, and so that person would have to be diverted to Miami. Officials say now they are working on a plan to handle someone such a case.

A map from the Centers for Disease and Control shows airports across the country with a quarantine station. In Florida there is only one in Miami.
