U.S. President Barack Obama has described the Ebola outbreak in West Africa as “a threat to global security”.
During a visit to the Atlanta headquarters of the U.S. Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Tuesday, President Obama spoke on the Ebola outbreak and announced a major increase in efforts to help the international community fight the outbreak.
The world was looking to the US, Obama said, but added that the outbreak required a “global response”.
He said the epidemic is going to get worse before it gets better, but the world still had an opportunity to save countless lives, adding that the United States of America intends to do more in tackling the virus.
