Obama Expected To Increase Efforts To Fight Ebola
President Obama is planning to increase U.S. efforts to help fight the Ebola outbreak in West Africa. Obama during a visit to CDC on Tuesday is expected to detail plans to increase U.S. military involvement, send more health care experts, medical supplies and portable hospitals to the affected areas, and train health workers in Liberia and other countries. In addition, Obama likely will press Congress to approve $88 million in funding for the efforts.
