CDC Update on Ebola

Today in Atlanta, Tom Frieden, Director of Centers for Disease Control spoke about growing concern over the Ebola outbreak. He assures that the CDC is controlling the spread of Ebola in West Africa.

Firstly, by working with hospitals to create more awareness about infectious diseases and by providing technical support.

Secondly, Frieden adds the CDC is also diligently working with health departments of all stages, city, state, big city, and health department associations.

Addressing distress over travel concerns, Tom assures the public that the CDC is looking at what they can immediately do to increase health. “I know that people are eager about more information of travel. We are ensuring that health of America is top priority.” The CDC recognizes whatever they do they cannot ‘reduce the risk to zero’ until the disease is contained in West Africa. Citing that it’s more important to not do something that backfires.

He finishes in a hopeful note; “We know how to stop Ebola, that’s what happening in Dallas today. That’s what’s beginning to occur in west parts of Africa. The signs of progress are there, but it is going to be a long hard fight. And I think it’s always important to keep in mind that the enemy here is a virus and we together can top that.”
