Ebola Outbreak: The Inside Story

By  |  0 Comments

PBS Frontline takes a refreshing look at the Ebola outbreak that killed at least 10,000 people in Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone with Outbreak: The Inside Story of How the Ebola Outbreak Began, and Why it Wasn’t Stopped Sooner.

The film reveals the underlying causes behind the Ebola virus’ spread across West Africa, from crippling bureaucracy at the World Health Organization to sheer incompetence among senior government officials in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone.

What makes Outbreak refreshing is producer Dan Edge’s choice of characters and sustained effort to get the key decision-makers involved in the Ebola response to explain what went wrong.
