WH on Importance of Ebola Screening in “Gateway Cities”
As concerns over Ebola grow, White House Commentator Jon-Christopher Bua asks White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest if President Obama was considering a real coordinated effort with European Allies to ensure that travelers with Ebola do not board airplanes from infected areas of West Africa and reach the US indirectly through European “Gateway Cities.” Earnest remarks on the international effort to stop Ebola before possibly infected people fly.
