Maryland Representative Says Strides Being Made Against Ebola

October 25th, 2014 by WCBC Radio

 Some members of Congress say the new Ebola infection in New York City is exposing flaws in the system and raising new concerns. At a House hearing Friday they criticized the federal response to Ebola, and questioned the credibility of top officials. Republican John Mica (MY'-kuh) of Florida said the system is "not working." He said, "All you need to do is look at Craig Spencer." He's the doctor who was diagnosed with Ebola late Thursday, a week after returning from Africa. Democrat Elijah Cummings of Maryland  said the swift response to the case in New York shows that the U.S. health community has made strides since the initial misdiagnosis of a patient in Texas, who later died.
