Although there have only been three cases of Ebola diagnosed in the United States, unease about contracting the disease has spread across the country. At the same time, nurses are asking President Obama to mandate uniform procedures for dealing with Ebola in all U.S. hospitals, where they say preparations are, for the most part, far from adequate. As VOA’s Greg Flakus reports from Houston, public officials are supporting these requests.
