U.S. ‘Will Not Rest’ Until Ebola Epidemic Stopped

Fox News: CDC chief: Why I have hope about 2015 Ebola fight
Tom Frieden, CDC director

“…As long as there is a single case of Ebola in West Africa, none of us are safe. But as 2015 begins, I am hopeful. Hopeful about the progress that’s being made in West Africa, where survivors are increasing with each passing day. Hopeful about heroic health care workers, burial team members, ambulance drivers, and many others who have vowed not to rest until their countrymen are safe and the epidemic is over. And, most of all, hopeful because of the lessons we’ve learned and new resources we now have to apply those lessons both at home and abroad. We will not rest until the epidemic has been stopped…” (1/13).
