President Barack Obama said Tuesday that Americans deployed to West Africa since August have had a positive impact in the fight against the Ebola virus. “They are starting to see some progress in Liberia,” he said. “That’s thanks to the incredible work and dedication of folks from the United States who are leading the way in helping Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone,” Obama added, referring to the three countries hit hardest by the disease.
The president also said it’s important to have “sensible” monitoring of health care workers who return from fighting Ebola in West Africa to the United States, as well as to make sure those workers are supported and applauded. “We don’t want to discourage our health workers from going to the front lines and dealing with this in an effective way,” Obama said.
