CDC Warns Ebola Outbreak Could Reach 1.4 Million in 3 Months
The Ebola virus disease is spreading throughout western Africa, and the CDC is warning that the spread could top 1.4 million cases in January 2015 if not controlled. Furthermore, the longer it takes the control, the more difficult it will be to quarantine and attempt to treat the disease, as it spreads very rapidly. Kim Horcher and Christina Ochoa (Science educator) discuss.
Jane Goodall shares an important message on the need for empathy in science, and how viewing intelligent and social non-humans as “animal beings” can help us not only treat them with the respect they deserve, but also understand how their complex biology and behavior is intertwined with our own.
