3K American Soldiers Depart For Liberia


Three-thousand U.S. Army soldiers are headed to Liberia to support medical personnel battling an outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus. The troops will help to build seventeen clinics for the isolation and treatment of people suffering the disease that has killed more than 3,000 people in West Africa and has now claimed its first victim in the United States.

Meanwhile, in Dallas, the city where the nation’s first domestically diagnosed Ebola patient died, a cautious tone is struck at schools and hospitals. ABC’s Jim Ryan is there.
