Barack Obama says he now views the Ebola epidemic in West Africa as a global threat. Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf believes the disease could threaten the very existence of her nation. The US has promised to send 3,000 troops to help cope with the emergency, and even the UN Security Council is making moves to help.
