Ebola: Then and Now - Rick Brennan

Director, Ebola Response Team

THEN: In September last year we were seeing, across the 3 countries, over 950 cases per week. The number of cases at that point was increasing exponentially. We didn’t have the resources or the capacities to catch up with the outbreak.

NOW: Our staff are out in the field, day to day, pounding the turf, trying to find cases and find contacts. And I think that has played an important role in contributing to a more effective international response in support of the countries.
