Bill Clinton Calls for Aggressive Response to Ebola Outbreak

Bill Clinton called Saturday for the nations of the world to get more aggressive in the fight against the Ebola virus.

The former president said steps by Western powers like the United States to help infected countries in West Africa treat the deadly disease are a good start, but fall shy of the effort needed to bring the problem under control.

“We’re going to have to do whatever it takes to contain the epidemic,” Clinton said Saturday in a press call, according to Reuters.

“It’s a sprawling, growing thing,” Clinton added. “But at least they’re putting the infrastructure in and have shown a willingness to put some money behind it, and I think it’s a good beginning.”
