Panelists talked about treating the Ebola epidemic in western Africa and steps to prevent future outbreaks. They discussed the magnitude of this Ebola outbreak and how it differed from previous ones. Dr. Cetron said that the virus was winning and that the resources available were not sufficient to contain it. Topics included current vaccines, what the role of the U.S. should be, and the possibility of military involvement.

The O’Neill Institute Colloquium “The West African Ebola Epidemic: How Can It be Contained and How Can We Prevent the Next One?” was held at Georgetown University Law Center. close
