New York Times: The Shifting Ebola Epidemic
Editorial Board

“Recent gains in controlling the Ebola epidemic in West Africa have been encouraging, but they offer no reason for complacency. … Given the changing shape of the epidemic, United Nations and American officials are considering a more nimble response that would deploy smaller, more geographically dispersed treatment centers, rather than complete all of the large treatment units that were planned. Some nonprofit groups recommend sending rapid-response teams by helicopter to remote villages. As the outbreak moves, international assistance must keep up with shifting needs” (11/15).
