Obama: ‘My New Ebola Response Coordinator Is Working Eo Ensure a Seamless Response’

‘Starting this week, these travelers will be required to report their temperatures and any symptoms on a daily basis’

Weekly Address: Focused on the Fight Against Ebola (The White House)

WASHINGTON, DC — In this week’s address, the President discussed the measures we are taking to respond to Ebola cases at home, while containing the epidemic at its source in West Africa.  This week we 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. Ebola is not an easily transmitted disease, and America is leading the world in the fight to stamp it out in West Africa.
