WASHINGTON D.C. (Worthy News)-- President Barack Obama on Tuesday called West Africa's deadly Ebola outbreak a looming threat to global security and announced a major expansion of the U.S. role in trying to halt its spread, including deployment of 3,000 troops to the region, Reuters reported.
"The reality is that this epidemic is going to get worse before it gets better," Obama said at the Atlanta headquarters of the U.S. Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
"But, right now, the world still has an opportunity to save countless lives. Right now, the world has the responsibility to act, to step up and to do more. The United States of America intends to do more," he added. -- [wp_colorbox_media url="http://in.reuters.com/article/2014/09/17/health-ebola-usa-idINKBN0HB1GL20140917" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]
