【 摘 要 】
The Ebola outbreak in West Africa that started in December 2013 has sickened more than 25,000 people and taken more than 10,000 lives, making it the largest Ebola outbreak ever recorded. A review of the chronology of transmission of disease in Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone juxtaposed with the containment efforts of the Ministers of Health, The World Health Organization and Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) reveal fissures in the response of the global community contributed to the spread of the disease.Ebola failed to be contained quickly because there was: a lack of an coordinated and robust containment program, an inherent distrust in the government and their ancillary Ebola warnings, widespread fear of Ebola Treatment Centers and subsequent hiding of patients, a highly mobile population, the appearance of the disease in urban centers.While the disease has caused widespread morbidity and mortality and destroyed communities and the health care infrastructure, Ebola has given the global health community the opportunity to rebuild health systems and test experimental therapies that can prevent future epidemics from causing widespread devastation and loss of life.
