Washington Post Examines How U.S. Military Ebola Treatment Center Could Help Liberian City
Washington Post: Can a U.S. military Ebola treatment center slow Ebola in one hard-hit city?
“…The U.S. military aims to quell … anxiety when it erects the new treatment center [in Ganta, Liberia], slated to be finished later this month and manned by newly imported doctors. … But a modern treatment center won’t be enough to eliminate Ebola in a place where the outbreak appears to rise and fall every few weeks and where victims sometimes disappear into remote communities with the disease. The question is whether those victims can be persuaded to use the new facility once it is built, preventing the spread of the disease in some of the country’s most vulnerable areas…” (Sieff, 11/2).
