CDC teaches crash course for health care workers headed to hot zone

The international medical charity on the forefront of the fight against Ebola says it has reached its limit. The director of operations for Doctors Without Borders said Wednesday, "we have reached our ceiling" battling the outbreak in West Africa.

This comes as the U.N. says the hot zone could soon see 10,000 new cases each week. Yet hundreds of American health care workers are still volunteering to go West Africa.

The CDC is now teaching a crash course in preventing infection to doctors and nurses headed to West Africa.

Will it be enough?
