Ebola: how the international community failed to respond in time

This morning we learned that sad news that Thomas Eric Duncan has died in Ebola in Texas. While much of the recent coverage of Ebola has focused on the United States, an outstanding piece in the Washington Post (Out of Control: How the World’s Health Organizations failed to stop the Ebola disaster) provides an excellent history of the Ebola outbreak. Through interviews with medical personnel in West Africa, it describes how it was that the international community failed to intervene until too late.
