Evolution of an Outbreak

Hosted by

Ebola is a terrifying and deadly disease. But it’s made all the more dangerous and frightening because of the difficulties in containing it. It’s a hodge-podge of international, government and non-profit organizations that go into into action during such an outbreak. And custom, superstition and fear can hamper their ability to treat it and stop its spread.
