During his September 16, 2014 visit to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), former President Barack Obama was updated on the steps CDC and the rest of our government are taking here, and abroad to fight Ebola globally, and keep the American people safe (see PHIL 18021 and 18022). Here, standing at the podium, the President was addressing a group of CDC personnel, discussing with the audience the future efforts to be made by the United States and the World to combat the West African Ebola epidemic, and his sincere appreciation, for the hard work put forth by CDC staff.
Additional Information:
Former CDC Director Tom Frieden, MD, MPH, wrote: “CDC will continue working alongside multiple U.S. agencies, domestic and international partners to help West Africa stop Ebola. During the President’s press briefing, he noted that this is the largest global response in CDC history, and voiced his appreciation to the more than 100 CDC staff on the ground in West Africa and the many more supporting the work stateside.” Read the White House a summary of the U.S. response by way of the link below.
