Obama said affected countries should focus on building a “strong public infrastructure,” adding: “I think we have to let the science guide us… I don’t think all the information is in on whether this drug is helpful.” He emphasized that Ebola, a hemorrhagic virus that kills more than half of those infected, “is not an airborne disease. “As a consequence, it spread more rapidly than has been typical with the periodic Ebola outbreaks that occurred previously,” he added.
