Ebola Then and Now - Daniel Bausch

Epidemic clinical management

THEN: The year 2014 was incredibly chaotic. I remember being in a small ward for Ebola patients in Kenema, Sierra Leone, which had already been expanded 2 times to make bigger wards, and more space.

NOW: There are over 10,000 people who have survived Ebola virus disease, and they have medical problems, like persistent pains in the joints, also social problems and stigmatization. So it’s still kind of an emergent issue but maybe less in the public eye than in 2014, when there were so many acute cases.
