What The World, And Trump, Needs to Do to Stop Ebola

More than 200 people have died of Ebola in the Democratic Republic of Congo, as fears grow that the latest outbreak is being worsened by the increasing fighting in the eastern region of the country. During the 2014 outbreak, the international health community was criticised  for being slow to respond and more than 11 000 people died - will this outbreak be a repeat of that tragedy?
