Two civil wars and abject poverty - those are two conditions that have led to this horrendous situation in Liberia. Cholera, malaria, and ebola have the same initial symptoms, so for a long time, it was incorrectly diagnosed. The documentary illustrates why an ebola outbreak in the US is so unlikely. We have clean water, a solid service network, a functioning infrastructure, enough beds/quarantine spaces, and plenty of disinfectant. It is up to each of us to keep all of our viruses to ourselves. Make sure you wash your hands everybody - a lot.
