Ebola news has been plenty this week, particularly in the past couple days.

First, a 9-year-old girl from the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) was diagnosed with Ebola in Kasese District, Uganda.

By Friday morning, she had died from the illness.

In addition, the DRC outbreak has met “another grim milestone” as the Ebola case count has surpassed the 3,000 mark AND the death toll eclipsed the 2,000 mark.

I look at these two events from recent days and ask, “Is everything being done to get this under control?” and “What can be done to get it under control?”.
