With Many U.S.-Built Ebola Treatment Units Empty, Health Officials Draw Lessons From Epidemic Response

New York Times: Empty Ebola Clinics in Liberia Are Seen as Misstep in U.S. Relief Effort
“…The [U.S. military’s] emphasis on constructing [Ebola] treatment centers — so widely championed last year — ended up having much less impact than the inexpensive, nimble measures taken by residents to halt the outbreak, many officials say. Liberia could be declared free of Ebola as early as next month. But with health officials warning that it is only a matter of time before another outbreak erupts in this region, they are drawing important lessons from the successes and shortcomings of the response by international and West African leaders…” (Onishi, 4/11).
