Obama Appoints Ebola 'Czar' Ron Klain

President Barack Obama has appointed an Ebola coordinator to manage the U.S. response to the outbreak as anxiety over the country's three Ebola cases and the risk they pose to the public intensifies.

President Barack Obama will appoint Ron Klain his "Ebola czar." Klain is highly regarded at the White House as a good manager, but has no medical or health administration experience.

The appointment comes as the epidemic worsens in West Africa, but no new cases have been reported for more than 24 hours.
