CBS: ‘White House Pushed Hard’ To Stop Ebola Quarantines (Washington Free Beacon)

State and federal officials continue to spar over how travelers coming from Ebola-stricken countries should be treated.

Both New York and New Jersey have implemented Ebola quarantine procedures in response to the epidemic, but the White House has shunned these efforts.

On CBS This Morning, host Norah O’Donnell spoke about a 5-year-old boy with a fever who was sent to New York’s Bellevue Hospital yesterday after returning from a trip to Guinea.

Despite such news, O’Donnell said White House officials are still “trying to roll back the new Ebola rules.”
