How U.S. Military Fights Ebola in One City

Posted November 3, 2014 at 5:00am

The Washington Post reports that “the U.S. military aims to quell that anxiety when it erects the new treatment center, slated to be finished later this month and manned by newly imported doctors. Just the sight of American helicopters flying over Ganta, a city of about 50,000, has lifted hopes here.”  

“But a modern treatment center won’t be enough to eliminate Ebola in a place where the outbreak appears to rise and fall every few weeks and where victims sometimes disappear into remote communities with the disease. The question is whether those victims can be persuaded to use the new facility once it is built, preventing the spread of the disease in some of the country’s most vulnerable areas.”
