Situation Awareness. Ebola Crisis. Recovery, Revitalization, Resiliency Building.


Same Old Mistakes
Although last year’s Ebola epidemic was a great surprise biologically speaking, practically all nonbiological aspects of the crisis “were entirely unsurprising, as the epidemic itself and the fumbling response to it played out with deeply frustrating predictability,” writes Laurie Garrett, Senior Fellow for Global Health at the Council on Foreign Relations.

Her 10,000-plus word treatise about how the WHO mishandled the crisis is both substantive and riveting. She addresses areas requiring attention: the availability and use of experimental medicines, vaccines and rapid diagnostic tools. And she introduces readers to the likes of Miatta Zenabu Gbanya, a crisis-seasoned nurse who said, “I thought I knew fear very well. I thought fear in Darfur was the worst feeling. But no—it’s Ebola.”
