This is a photo of President Obama meeting with Ebola survivor Kent Brantly in the Oval Office.
It may seem like a nondescript and fairly routine presidential meeting, but it was intended to send a strong message: That Brantly is completely Ebola-free, and that it is safe to interact with survivors of the deadly virus.
There is still plenty of concern and hysteria surrounding the treatment of American patients with Ebola at U.S. facilities. Brantly is just one of four people who have been or currently are being treated at U.S. hospitals; as a survivor, he is now free of the virus and immune to the strain of Ebola that's currently ravaging several countries in West Africa.
That Obama is willing to sit in a room with Brantly demonstrates that the leader of the free world believes those concerns have no basis.
