Fighting the Ebola epidemic


Guests: Harvey Rubin and Jeffrey Stern

As the Ebola epidemic continues to spread and ravage West Africa, we look at efforts to fight the epidemic and why the global response came so late. Guest host Mary Cummings-Jordan talks with infectious disease specialist HARVEY RUBIN, director of the Institute for Strategic Threat Analysis and Response at the University of Pennsylvania and writer JEFFREY STERN who went to Guinea to trace the origins of the outbreak which he chronicles in an article in this month’s Vanity Fair.
