Obama says it 'may be appropriate' to appoint Ebola Czar

Daniel Varga, a top official from Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital, where Duncan was treated by both nurses, conceded, “We made mistakes.”

Obama, however, said that if the U.S. continues to take the steps it has been taking the disease “will be contained” in the United States.

Some lawmakers called for a travel ban on countries experiencing Ebola outbreaks. Obama dismissed those suggestions, saying they would be counterproductive.
