Obama: World not doing enough to fight Ebola

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama says “the world is not doing enough” to fight Ebola.

Obama suggested to reporters Tuesday that he plans to reach out to foreign leaders to pressure them to do more. He spoke at the end of a meeting with U.S. and allied military leaders primarily focused on the threat from Islamic State militants.

Obama says the United States will continue to do its part to fight the deadly disease. But he said, “Everybody’s going to have to do more than they are doing right now.”

Obama also offered thoughts and prayers to the nurse being treated for Ebola after she tended to a Liberian man visiting Dallas. Obama says he wants to make sure lessons learned from that case are applied to health centers around the U.S.
