CDC’s Frieden: Ebola Could Become Next AIDS

‘The only thing like this has been AIDS; And we have to work now so that this is not the world’s next AIDS’

CDC: Ebola could be 'the world's next AIDS' (The Hill)

Ebola poses a threat equivalent to AIDS and will become just as deadly without further action, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director Tom Frieden said Thursday.

The remark is part of a marked increase in the intensity of warnings about Ebola from Frieden, the Obama administration's point man in communicating to the public about the virus.

"I've been working in public health for 30 years," Frieden told a World Bank and International Monetary Fund meeting in Washington.
