Ebola Treatment, Isolation Centers Continue To Be Built In Liberia As Epidemic Winds Down
Washington Post: U.S.-built Ebola treatment centers in Liberia are nearly empty as outbreak fades
“… Although future flare-ups of the disease are possible, the near-empty Ebola centers tell the story of an aggressive American military and civilian response that occurred too late to help the bulk of the more than 8,300 Liberians who became infected. Last week, even as international aid organizations built yet more Ebola centers, there was an average of less than one new case reported in Liberia per day. … To some of the Liberian doctors who have been fighting the disease almost since the beginning of the outbreak last spring, the continued push to construct Ebola centers makes little sense…” (Sieff, 1/18).
