WASHINGTON, D.C. – President Obama today spoke about how the U.S. is working to prevent an epidemic of Ebola in the United States.

“If we take the steps that are necessary, if we’re guided by the science—the facts, not fear—then I am absolutely confident that we can prevent a serious outbreak here in the United States, and we can continue to lead to the world in this urgent effort,” President Obama said in a video-recorded statement.

According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the 2014 Ebola epidemic is the largest in history, affecting multiple countries in West Africa. One imported case from Liberia and associated locally acquired cases in healthcare workers have been reported in the United States. CDC and partners are taking precautions to prevent the further spread of Ebola within the United States.

Over 4,500 people have died int he latest outbreak.

You want to stop this disease from coming to the US, then don’t allow any flights from infected countries to land here. And, do not send any soldiers or citizens to those countries. Easy!!!!
