#Ebola

Monday, 13 October, 2014

In a time of hysteria and rumour, much of which is being spread by the the 24/7 news biz, it is comforting to know that sober and alternative sources of information about the Ebola virus exist. For instance, there’s the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Ebola page and its equivalent from the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control. Google News has a dedicated site, and the Ebola Resource Centre at The Lancet has made all of the publication’s relevant articles freely accessible. The Pathogen Perspectives is a new Ebola-oriented blog that’s very well-informed and documented.

Meanwhile, under the hashtags #Ebola and #EbolaOutbreak, one can listen to the voices of real people and concerned organizations. Sure, there are trolls out there, but they go with the social media territory.
