Fear of Ebola Spreads Faster Than the Virus

Hosted by

The first person to contract Ebola in the United States is a nurse who treated Thomas Duncan, the man who died of Ebola in Dallas after catching it in Liberia. Other healthcare workers who treated Duncan might be at risk. So they—and people they’ve contacted—are being monitored. We'll hear about the risks in this country, and how Ebola spread in Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone. Despite alarms being sounded by some politicians, the bottom line is that the way to keep America safe is to stop the disease in West Africa.
