A picture of the massive Ebola response that’s now in place in West Africa, and how it is making great strides in the fight to contain the year-long outbreak: http://www.who.int/csr/disease/ebola/situation-reports/en/.
Example: in Sierra Leone, 100% of districts have access to lab services within 24hours and have key religious and community leaders who promote safe burials; 1150 ebola treatment center beds available (that’s 8.7 beds per reported case currently); 96% of registered contacts to be traced are reached daily; 102 trained burial teams are available. 117 new cases were confirmed in the week of Jan 18th, but that was down from 184 in the week before.
Thank you to everyone who is working to turn the crisis around.
