Call for “All-Hands-on-Deck” Government Response to Ebola

JAMA. 2015;313(2):124. doi:10.1001/jama.2014.17748

The Senate Committee on Appropriations held a hearing November 12 on the US government response to Ebola. “This is a serious situation that requires an all-hands-on-deck, all-government response,” committee chair Sen Barbara Mikulski (D, Md) said in an opening statement.

The United States needs to focus on West Africa to stop further spread of the virus in that part of the world and beyond, Mikulski said. “Second, we need to protect America at points of entry, such as airports and shipping ports,” she said. “And finally, we need to protect America by utilizing the best science and deploying it through our public health and safety agencies.”
