Ebola Discussion Forum


In August, 2014 there was an Ebola epidemic in Africa. Two Americans doctors contracted the disease while doing mission work. They were transported back to the U.S. and treated at Emory hospital in Atlanta, GA. At the heart of this debate is whether they should have been brought back due to fears of an outbreak in U.S. and also who should get treatment. Research this case, and explain your position on this issue with your classmates. Consider the all viewpoints and information.
