Monday on CNN’s “The Situation Room With Wolf Blitzer,” Deputy National Security Adviser Tony Blinken, after being interrupted by a press conference on the patient in New York who recently returned from a West African country is being tested for Ebola, said the White House is closely monitoring the Ebola situation.
Blinken said, “We’re doing more than watching. We’re surging support to the countries affected by this in West Africa, expertise, protective gear. Here at home we’re taking every precaution with the protections, protocols you’ve heard about, to make sure there’s no problem here. It’s more than watching. It’s acting.”
