Worthy Christian News » CDC Raised Alert to Highest Level Amid Ebola Outbreak

ATLANTA (Worthy News)– The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has raised their emergency response to the Ebola outbreak to level 1, Fox News reported.

This is the highest level of emergency response at the CDC and, according to an agency spokesperson, it has been activated because of the surge of personnel being sent into the affected countries. The CDC’s emergency operations center is now assisting the National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases in Atlanta, which specializes in the study and research of Ebola.

As of Wednesday, there are 240 CDC staff members working on the Ebola response, with 30 in the affected regions and more en route. — Source

    Whatever it is we best hope and for those who pray that it doesn't come here. Thousands could die, millions even. I don't think we're taking it serious enough, as most people don't think it will come to where they are, but we don't know where will be next. Let's just hope it doesn't spread all over, GOD help us all.
