KFF Updates Resource On Ebola Amid Latest Outbreak In DRC

Kaiser Family Foundation: Ebola: Five Key Questions
With a new outbreak reported in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) in May 2018, the Ebola virus is again in the news; four years have passed since the emergence of a major epidemic in West Africa in 2014 that eventually killed over 11,000 people. The current outbreak is generating a growing international response, including funding and technical assistance from the World Health Organization (WHO) and other global health organizations. To better understand Ebola, this resource poses five key questions about Ebola and compares it to twelve other infectious diseases that represent public health challenges today (5/14).
