This book recounts the Ebola Virus Outbreak of 2014-2015 by merging clinical and diagnostic issues with behavioral and political factors. Lessons learned are intended to help future respondents by improving coordination and collaboration. The book begins with a report of an earlier prediction of an impending outbreak based on serological evidence from a decade earlier. This warning was ignored. As a result, early cases of Ebola and efforts to control the epidemic were hindered by old approaches, and human behavior, facilitating the spread of the virus, worsening the outbreak. This is a case study of failures and successes highlighted by the struggle to halt this devastating epidemic. Key selling features:Provides a concise overview of an outbreak that captured special public attentionFocuses upon both clinical and diagnostic aspects of the epidemicDocuments important lessons learned from this outbreak that can provide guidance for inevitable future epidemicsIllustrates the important role played by preparation for outbreaksExplores the role of human behavior on disease spread
