Presidential spokesman Josh Earnest is trying to tamp down concerns about Ebola in the USA.  In a White House briefing, Earnest insisted that the Ebola virus does not pose a significant risk to Americans.  He said the U.S. has the medical infrastructure in place to effectively deal with individual cases of Ebola and prevent a widespread outbreak.  An unidentified man with Ebola was hospitalized in Texas this past weekend.
