Obama expresses optimism about Ebola in US
WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama says he's cautiously more optimistic about the Ebola situation in the U.S.
Obama notes that relatives of the only person to die of Ebola in the U.S. have been freed from quarantine.
And he notes that two nurses from a Dallas hospital who were infected with Ebola as a result of treating that now-deceased individual seem to be doing better.
Obama also says a declaration by the World Health Organization that Nigeria is free of Ebola shows the outbreak can be stopped when caught early.
The president commented Wednesday after meeting at the White House with Ron Klain, the government's newly appointed Ebola Response Coordinator.
