Rep. Bass

Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.), the top-ranking Democrat on the Subcommittee on Africa, has called on the international community to act immediately to contain the spread of Ebola.

The World Health Organization has announced that Ebola had reached Mbandaka, the provincial capital of nearly one million people in the Equateur Province of the Democratic Republic of Congo. "What we learned during the last outbreak was that only through extensive international collaboration can we stop this epidemic," Bass said, today. "I hope the White House and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention take this spread seriously and collaborate with the World Health Organization, the African Union, and the rest of our international partners on this serious matter.”
