Are Americans Really Worried About Ebola?

If you’ve been watching the news for the last few weeks, that’s pretty much all you’ve been hearing.  But just how concerned is the average American about the virus? And are they satisfied with how the Obama Administration has dealt with the threat of the disease so far?

I went to the national Mall where Americans shared their thoughts about the virus with me.

The reaction was mixed.  Some expected the virus to do a great deal of damage in the US before it would be effectively contained by the government.  Others believed that the media was over-hyping the dangers of the disease and weren’t worried at all.

However, most agreed that flights to and from the regions in Africa where the disease is raging should be temporarily stopped and had no idea why President Obama has been reluctant to take this step.
