Democratic lawmaker: 21-day Ebola quarantine not long enough

(CNN) – Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, is demanding a longer incubation period for people who come in contact with Ebola patients.

"About 5% of Ebola patients, their incubation period went beyond that 21-day period," Gabbard said, citing information from the World Health Organization.

"What I'm saying and calling for the CDC to do is to recognize the seriousness of this illness and make sure we're erring on the side of caution," Gabbard said in an interview with CNN's "The Lead with Jake Tapper."
