On Wednesday, California's top health officer ordered a 21-day quarantine for all returning medical workers and travelers who have had contact with a confirmed case of Ebola in West Africa. Those who disobey the restrictions may possibly face fines and imprisonment. Despite this, a number of California doctors have decided to travel to the region to help in the fight against the virus.
Dr. Phuoc Le is one of them.
He's a physician and global health expert from UC San Francisco and joins Alex Cohen on the program.
