A northeastern Wisconsin congressman is calling for stronger action to deal with the Ebola outbreak.
Congressman Reid Ribble (R-WI) sent House Speaker John Boehner a letter Thursday, calling for an emergency session to address the problem. The Sherwood Republican wants to ban commercial travel to Sierra Leone, Liberia, and Guinea.
Ribble is also calling for increased medical and military aid, to help fight the disease. He says it’s very important to deal with the problem at its source.
Ribble said the CDC predicts there could be up to 1.5 million Ebola cases in Africa alone, by the end of January. He says the world needs to end the threat before it gets out of control.
