Obama: US must remain vigilant in Ebola fight
WASHINGTON- President Barack Obama says the U.S. must remain vigilant in the Ebola fight even though there have been no recent domestic transmissions.
Obama says as long as the disease is spreading in West Africa, it's likely to come back to the United States. He said, "This is not a problem that's going to go away any time soon."
Obama made the remarks at the White House as he met with his national security and public health teams to receive an update on the Ebola response.
Obama praised doctors and nurses fighting the spread in Africa.
He says he was very pleased earlier this week to see Time Magazine make those health workers its Person of the Year. He says the courage, skill and professionalism they display makes him proud.
