UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS -- The Ebola virus is on U.S. soil and doctors at UI are preparing to test international students for it. More than 3,000 students will undergo a health screening. Most are from Asia, but some are from West Africa; the site of the outbreak.

Doctors say they aren't expecting to come across the virus, but if they do, they'll be prepared. Doctors say signs of the virus are fever, dehydration and exhaustion. Screenings will start in the next two weeks.
