U.S. Leadership Helping Turn Tide Against Ebola In West Africa

U.N. Dispatch: How American Leadership is Succeeding in Ending the Ebola Outbreak
Mark Leon Goldberg, managing editor of U.N. Dispatch, writes, “If present trends [of decreasing numbers of new Ebola cases] hold and this is in fact the beginning of the end of the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, the U.S. government deserves a great deal of credit for bringing this about. … We are not out of the woods yet. Far from it. But if the slowing down of infections is a trend that continues, we may be able to credit American leadership at the United Nations and elsewhere for finally bringing this outbreak to heel” (11/6).
