President Obama - The Fight Against Ebola
In this week’s address, the President discussed the measures being taking to respond to Ebola cases in the United States, while containing the epidemic at its source in West Africa. This week, the President said he continued to focus on domestic preparedness, with the creation of new CDC guidelines and the announcement of new travel measures ensuring all travelers from the three affected countries are directed to and screened at one of five airports.
The President emphasized that it’s important to follow the facts, rather than fear, as New Yorkers did yesterday when they stuck to their daily routine. He said Ebola is not an easily transmitted disease, and America is leading the world in the fight to stamp it out in West Africa.
