Ebola Crisis

“… parents are streaming into the schoolyard once again, with their restless children in tow, to register for the start of classes.

 W.H.O. announced last week that it was focusing on a goal that had seemed out of reach for much of last year: ending the Ebola epidemic, no longer simply slowing its spread.”
