Wednesday during his comments on the U.S. Ebola response, President Barack Obama said we are likely to see more cases of the virus in America.
The president said, “I want America to understand, the truth is, until we stop this outbreak in West Africa, we may continue to see individual cases in America in the weeks and months ahead. Because that’s the nature of today’s world. We cant seal ourselves off. The nature of international travel and movent means that the only way to assure that we are safe is to make sure that we have dealt with the disease where right now it is most acute. So, yes, we are likely to see a possible case elsewhere outside of these countries, and that’s true, whether or not you adopt a travel ban, whether or not you adopt a quarantine. it’s the nature of diseases, as long as Ebola exists in the world, no one can promise there won’t be more cases in America or any place else.”
