The Ebola crisis in West Africa has led the Obama Administration to assign 3,000 U.S. military personnel to the region to supply medical support. The administration is hoping to increase the number of beds needed to isolate and treat Ebola victims. Present Obama made the announcement for preparations on Tuesday.

U.S. initiatives include training about five hundred health care workers each week and rebuild seventeen health care facilities in the region.
