WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama says “the world is not doing enough” to fight Ebola.

Obama suggested to reporters Tuesday that he will begin pressuring leaders of other countries to do more. He commented at the end of a meeting in Washington with U.S. and allied military leaders primarily focused on the threat from Islamic State militants.

Obama says the U.S. will continue to do its part but that other countries must do more than they are doing right now.

The president also offered thoughts and prayers to a Dallas nurse being treated for Ebola after she helped care for a Liberian man who died from the disease. Obama says he wants lessons learned from that case to be applied to hospitals around the country.
