UW Scientist: U.S. Gov't 'Underestimated' Ebola

(Seattle, WA)  --  A University of Washington researcher says the U.S. government underestimated the danger of the current Ebola outbreak in West Africa.  Microbiologist Michael Katze [[ KAT-zuh ]], who's studied Ebola for the past ten years, told KING-5 that the response by the CDC, the National Institute of Health, and the World Health Organization have been "inadequate."  An Ebola patient from Liberia, who was being treated in Dallas, died yesterday.  Officials say a Dallas County sheriff's deputy who entered the patient's apartment is undergoing testing for Ebola.
