CDC Director: 'Hard to Keep Up' with Ebola Outbreak in Africa

CDC Director: 'Hard to Keep Up' with Ebola Outbreak in Africa

Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” with Candy Crowley, CDC Director Tom Frieden said Ebola is spreading so fast in Africa that it is “hard to keep up.”

Frieden said “It’s going to take time. The virus is spreading so fast that it’s hard to keep up. That’s why it’s terrific the president has deployed the Department of Defense there in support of the disease control efforts. This is exactly what’s needed and it’s going to make a difference, but it’s going to take time.”

Frieden called the mistakes made in the Ebola first case in Dallas a “teachable moment,” adding, “After this incident I’m certain there’s a lot more concern and attention throughout the U.S.”
