1. Local Ebola Research Efforts

    Reports of Ebola had appeared to recede in the last few weeks; however the news of Dr. Martin Salia’s death in the US on Monday was a reminder that the fatal disease is very much still a threat to the entire world. President Barack Obama met with Congress on Tuesday to request $6.18 billion in order to fund research to fight the Ebola virus. In total there have been 10 patients treated for Ebola in the US to date, with 2 ending in death. This shows that when caught early and given the correct treatment, there is a good chance of recovery but increased funding is still crucial in order to contain the disease nationally and internationally.
