On Tuesday, President Barack Obama must announce his decision to send 3,000 American servicemen to help in the fight against Ebola virus in West Africa. At the same time, the Pentagon asked the Congress to repeal the financial assistance of $ 500 million.
Ebola virus has caused more than 2,200 deaths in West Africa, and on Tuesday, the President of the United States has to tell about his plans to fight the disease during the speech at the Center for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta.
The Administration stated that the United States provide medical and consultancy support, which includes sending 500 health care workers a week, creation of 17 health facilities with about 100 hospital beds, creation of joint headquarters in Monrovia, Liberia, and interaction with the United States and international organizations.
The United States also provide kits for domiciliary health support for thousands of families, including those 50 thousand sets the United States Agency for International Development has to send this week to Liberia.
