The largest ever Ebola outbreak is underway in several countries in West Africa. The epidemic continues to grow and spread into new areas, threatening more lives and potentially the economies of affected countries.
Last spring, most people would have guessed that this Ebola outbreak in West Africa would be over by the end of summer. Yet, nine months on, we're in the midst of the deadliest outbreak in history, and one that has defied the odds: it has lasted longer, killed more, and spread further than any previous outbreak.
For the first time ever, Ebola cases have been diagnosed outside of Africa in the US.
Right now, many are worried about it spreading in side of America.
We the undersigned call on Congress to stop flights to and from Africa until the Ebola epidemic has been contained only to that region of the world.
