U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. on the battle against Ebola 

For the first time in its history, the United Nations held an emergency meeting on a public health crisis. The Security Council voted to declare West Africa's Ebola outbreak a "threat to international peace and security." New numbers from the World Health Organization show more than 2,600 people have died from Ebloa and more than 5,000 have been infected. When it comes to fighting Ebola, U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Samantha Power told Anderson that "words are meaningless, unless the words today turn into concrete commitments."
