State officials in Maryland are testing the state's ability to respond to the deadly Ebola virus.

Gov. Martin O'Malley held the drill with members of his cabinet this week. The governor's press office says there have been no cases of Ebola in Maryland, and the likelihood of an outbreak in the state is low.

A spokeswoman says O'Malley typically convenes four of these kinds of exercises that involve his cabinet each year. For the most recent and final one, O'Malley decided to hold an Ebola-specific drill "due to real world events'' in the three West African nations of Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone.
