Surviving Ebola – Lessons Learned One Year Later 7

It might seem like Ebola has vanished from the U.S., but a year later, the effects of the virus are just taking shape.

In 2014, Americans watched from afar as Ebola raged through West Africa, killing thousands and threatening millions. Until Sept. 30, when a Liberian man named Thomas Eric Duncan tested positive in a Dallas emergency room. Two nurses were infected before he died. Fear traveled faster, and far wider, than the virus. Explore what happened in Dallas – and the lessons hospitals and governments learned.

Surviving Ebola, a KERA News special, airs Sept. 30 at 2 p.m. and Oct. 2 at 7 p.m. on KERA 90.1 FM.
