CDC: Ebola Outbreak Worse Than Expected

(Atlanta, GA) -- The director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says the Ebola outbreak in West Africa is worse than expected. Doctor Thomas Frieden is in Liberia to evaluate the situation. Frieden said in a phone interview that health officials never have seen anything on this scale before and that the outbreak is outpacing their response. He said Liberia needs treatment centers because some patients are being put out on the street.
