The Osterholm Quote

"We are truly in uncharted Ebola-control territory. Even in the 2014-15 [Ebola] epidemic in West Africa, once public health programs and vaccination efforts were put into place, it brought about a rather rapid reduction of cases. We've never encountered a situation where a geographic region becomes almost completely impossible to work in because of insecurity."
