Science Speaks Ebola Coverage Continues
The IDSA/HIVMA global Science Speaks blog continued its coverage of the ongoing spread of Ebola in the Democratic Republic of Congo:
- Reporting the World Health Organization’s decision to declare that the outbreak now constitutes a Public Health Emergency of International Concern;
- Reporting on the confirmation of the virus in a Goma patient; and
- Highlighting a Washington Post opinion piece by former Ebola Coordinator Ron Klain and IDSA member Daniel Lucey, MD, FIDSA, on how an emergency declaration would spur a strengthened response to the outbreak.
