Chris Christie Downplays Ebola Panic And Travel Ban: 'Everyone Needs to Be Calm'

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie held a press conference this morning to detail the state’s response to the Ebola virus.

Christie explained what he was doing to ensure that state and national health and law enforcement agencies were communicating and working together to address the problems.

Christie explained that in his own home, his children were worried about Ebola.

Christie also implicitly criticized political figures for “stoking hysteria” about the disease.

Christie also indicated that he did not support a travel ban from the affected countries, calling it “a misnomer” as there were because “no direct flights from these countries to the United States.” 

He did, however, signal support for a visa suspension but reminded reporters that President Obama would be in charge of a potential travel ban or a visa ban.
