Ebola cases overwhelms new hospital in Liberia

The Ebola outbreak just keeps getting worse. More than 2,800 people have died from Ebola in West Africa and more than 5,800 people are believed to have been infected. CNN's Senior medical correspondent Elizabeth Cohen saw crisis first hand, from one of the hardest hit countries in the region: Liberia. Cohen arrived just after the United Nations called for a global response to the crisis and President Obama announced new steps to help lead the fight including sending U.S. troops to Liberia to help plan and build treatment centers filled with beds that are desperately needed. Cohen takes a closer look at how Ebola cases are a challenge even to new hospital.

    Ebola should be a worldwide concern and I appreciate seeing an article that focuses on the future of what to expect with this deadly disease. Hospitals should be thinking five steps ahead about what they plan to do about this rising epidemic, and what will happen if it continues to spread and potentially grow in strains. I just wrote an article about the Ebola outbreak on my website Health Break with Leilani Spring (www.leilanispringfischbeck.com). This issue needs to be given full attention.
