Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director Tom Frieden vowed to “stop Ebola in its tracks” in the United States while acknowledging that the Dallas outbreak could become larger than one case.
“I’m not going to promise that we can stop this at just one case, but I can tell you we have the advantage because the right steps are being taken,” Frieden wrote late Thursday in an op-ed for CNN.
“Even if we tried to close the border, it wouldn’t work,” Frieden said Friday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”
“People have a right to return, people transiting through could come in, and it would backfire because by isolating these countries will make it harder to help them.”
