Obama on Ebola crisis: 'We must be guided by facts not fear'

President Obama has used his weekly address to tell Americans that the US can 'beat' Ebola.

On Friday, the governors of New York and New Jersey announced that everyone arriving from West Africa who had had contact with Ebola patients would be placed in quarantine for 21 days.

This came after a doctor, Craig Spencer, was diagnosed with the disease following his return to New York from Guinea.

President Obama urged US citizens to continue to work together to tackle the problem saying: "We have to be guided by the facts not fear."
