Stop Ebola Virus From Spreading


Target: Barack Obama, President of the United States

Goal: Intensify plan to deploy aid to areas stricken by the Ebola outbreak

President Barack Obama has recently announced that the United States will be lending additional resources to the fight against the Ebola outbreak. During an address from Atlanta’s Center for Disease Control and Prevention, President Obama pledged to deploy 3,000 troops to disease-ravaged Liberia, where the epidemic has hit hardest, to help with relief efforts. The Obama Administration has committed over $175 million and is asking congress for additional funds to help with plans to build 17 Ebola treatment centers with around 100 beds each and launch courses to train 500 health care providers per week.

The Ebola outbreak in West Africa is the worst seen since the discovery of the virus in 1976 and has been categorized as an international health emergency by the World Health Organization. So far, nearly 3,000 people have died, including 120 health care providers. The disease, which attacks the immune system and causes organ failure, has a mortality rate of 47 percent. There is currently no proven or approved cure for the disease, though some experimental treatments appear to be raising the survival rate.

The disease is spreading quickly with the number of new cases rising to 700 per week—up 200 from weeks ago. Health officials at the National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases predict that cases could balloon into the hundreds of thousands if the crisis is not addressed in time. The United Nations Security Council has called the outbreak a “threat to international peace and security,” while the White House has declared it a global threat.

In order to stop the spread of the virus, it is vital that the international community step up to offer aid to the most afflicted areas. The Obama Administration’s efforts will go a long way to helping victims in West Africa as well as containing the disease. Sign the petition below to thank President Obama for his work and ask that he continue to fight the Ebola outbreak.


Dear President Obama,

The White House recently announced that it will be deploying 3,000 troops to Liberia to help with Ebola relief efforts, and has committed $175 million to the fight against the outbreak. The United States will be building 17 Ebola treatment clinics and training 500 health care providers per week with an online course.

Ebola is spreading at an alarming rate and poses a great risk to the international community. I applaud your initiative to provide aid for the victims of the outbreak and ask for your continued work to fight Ebola.

  3. If you believe this you are indeed simple. Isn’t it a bit strange that the USA is willing to send out all these people to help, when supposedly there is no definite cure yet for the virus? Don’t you think there’s more than meets the eye going on here? Also, what’s going to happen when those health workers etc, sent out there return home? Are they completely immune to the virus themselves? It makes no sense whatsover to be sending people out there if there is yet no cure for this thing. If you want to help make it easier for people to avoid the virus in the first place, or help those who have it – if this is even possible – then SEND them supplies. They have their own doctors over there, instruct them via technology, DON’T send our people out there, nor should anyone from there be allowed to travel to OUR countries if it’s as bad as they are saying it is, which I’m beginning to suspect is not, and that this is some sort of ploy or smoke screen to cover up something else that’s going on that the government(s) is involved with. Open your eyes, none of this makes any sense. Don’t be so bloody gullible and soft in the head. These governments care nothing for helping people unless they have a vested interest in resources or other commodities in that nation.

    • Yeh you have apoint here…. I agree why send anyone there. STOP anyone comingout of the country and going for holidays etc., until its all cleared up and setled.

    • Absolutely. No travel in or out and anyone wanting to come home needs to be quarantined. Even those with “simple” intelligence can figure that out.

    • Hey I’m with you on this one Bast. The Govt is up to something fishy,they prob want it to come back to the US with the workers,if the workers survive that is!. They prob sprayed it over there in chem trails in the first place. Not all of us are asleep, we see what’s going on!

    • Bast I agree with you. I have tried to post more but I have been disconnected every time I try to submit it. Funny that!
