President Barack Obama and two congressional panels warned Tuesday that despite waning media attention, Ebola remains a serious global threat. The president has asked Congress for an additional $6.2 billion in emergency funding to fight the deadly disease in West Africa. Most lawmakers say they realize the money is urgently needed.
