Obama Talks Ebola, Criticizes State Responses

This is getting confusing


The United States must continue to be a global leader in the fight against Ebola by supporting health workers traveling to West Africa, President Barack Obama said.

"America in the end is not defined by fear—that's not who we are," Obama said in a Tuesday address, critiquing some states' policies of forcing returning humanitarian workers into quarantine.

Emphasizing the importance of deploying the full capabilities of the American health care system to West African countries suffering from the disease, Obama said that the federal government is advocating for "new monitoring and movement guidance that is sensible, based in science, and tailored to the unique circumstances" of each health worker returning to the U.S.
