Yahoo News sent a tweet late Sunday afternoon telling people to disregard information in an earlier, “unauthorized” tweet about an Ebola outbreak in Atlanta. Shortly before 5 p.m. ET Sunday, the Yahoo News account tweeted that there was an Ebola outbreak in Atlanta and an estimated 145 people were infected. Two Ebola patients were flown to Atlanta last week for treatment at Emory University Hospital, where they’re being given experimental drugs to try to fight the virus. Ebola has no known cure.
