Will the ebola outbreak affect the U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit?

As I have followed the news of the awful ebola outbreak in West Africa, I read more about the upcoming and important U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit.  It made me wonder whether, with at least one country closing its borders, the Summit would go forward. As of yesterday, the answer was yes. According to White House deputy press secretary Eric Schultz:  “I would tell you that we’re working closely with regional governments to stem the spread of the virus. We have no plans to change any elements of the U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit, as we believe all air travel continues to be safe here.”

Hoping that this outbreak is stemmed soon and that all those affected recover.
