The Ebola has been going around for at least several decades in West Africa. Congo / Zaïre has been one of the hot spots. Recently I read a book on an outbreak in Congo, long time ago. The problem is still not over.
Now a new book has come on the market. Getting to Zero is an account of the 2015 outbreak in West Africa. One writer dr Sinead Walsh is a former ambassador to Sierra Leone and Liberia. She did her work there when the ebola epidemic was raging. The other writer is dr Oliver Johnson, who was involved in partnerships with Sierra Leone and he as well was involved during the epidemic.
In this article you will find an interview with both writers of their book.
