'Ebola czar' Klain to leave post Feb. 15

President Barack Obama's "Ebola czar" Ron Klain will leave his post Feb. 15, the Washington Post reports. Klain, who was appointed last October to help oversee the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's response to the deadly virus, took the lead on such issues as persuading hospitals to get certified to treat Ebola patients and helped lobby Congress to grant more than $5 billion in emergency Ebola funding. Klain will return to his job as president of Case Holdings upon departing the White House; it remains unclear whether Obama will name a replacement, the Post reported. However, Klain will continue to advise the White House on the subject, according to White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough. Article
