Former CDC Director: Ebola Outbreak is ‘Clearly Going to Take Months’ to Solve

A former Center for Disease Control and Prevention director said Saturday that containing the Ebola virus is “clearly going to take months.”

Dr. Jeffrey Koplan, vice president for global health at Emory University and a former CDC director, told NBC news that this outbreak would take much longer to contain than previous ones because the virus has spread to urban areas in four different countries.

Dr. Koplan told reporters that containing this outbreak will take “more effort, more personnel and more equipment.”
