Did Obama Just Raise The Ebola Threat Level?

4 weeks ago this is what President Obama said "the chances of an Ebola outbreak here in the United States are extremely low."

Today, having reassured Americans that "Ebola is not like the flu, it's not airborne," (despite experts' concerns that Ebola could indeed be aerogenically transmitted) Obama stated that a "widespread outbreak of Ebola in the US is 'unlikely'"

From "Extremely Low" to "Unlikely"... in a month.
