Economic Threats Of Ebola Should Draw Additional Global Support To End Outbreak

Financial Times: Africa needs help to fight Ebola
“As a terrifying outbreak of Ebola virus spreads across West Africa, the world is beginning to wake up to the threat of a public health disaster in the region — and possibly more widely — but efforts to contain the epidemic require much more local coordination and global support. … While Ebola is primarily a health issue, it could quickly become an economic crisis, too, for the region. … The threat to international business and investment in West Africa should add weight to the humanitarian arguments for more decisive action against Ebola” (7/28).
