BOSTON (CBS) – Boston hospitals are training staff to be on the lookout for warning signs of the ebola virus, which kills 90 percent of people infected.

A doctor who died from the disease in Liberia had moved there from Minnesota to work as a government official.

He was headed back to the the United States to see his wife and three small children when he got sick during a stop in Nigeria.

Some Boston hospitals are now telling staff to get travel histories from patients who may have symptoms and isolate those who may have been exposed.
