Underused Ebola Clinics In West Africa Could Be Used For Future Outbreaks

Foreign Policy: An Empty, Underused Medical Outpost Could Be the Future of the Ebola Fight
“…U.S.-built [Ebola] treatment centers are sitting mostly empty around [Liberia], prompting criticism that the large international response was too slow to be of any real use in the fight.
