The Ebola Outbreak in West Africa: 'Are we really ready for the next big infectious disease outbreak'?
Emerging and re-emerging infections represent a threat to the global community including the United States. Over the last two decades we have seen some of these infections-SARS, Avian flu, H1N1, MERS and now the Ebola outbreak in West Africa. Ebola has exposed the vulnerabilities of entire healthcare systems and its interconnected components, especially in West African countries at the epicenter of the disease. Are we ready for the next big infectious disease outbreak?
