(NEWSER) – Plan A for stopping Ebola calls for shutting it down where it's already occurring, and that's not working. There's no Plan B in place to prevent it from expanding even further, especially if it hits a busy area with limited health care.
So it's time for Plan C, writes public health expert Michael T. Osterholm at Politico: "The only guaranteed solution to ending this Ebola crisis is to develop, manufacture, and deliver an effective Ebola vaccine, potentially to most of the people in West Africa, and maybe even to most of the population of the African continent." That means we need 500 million doses of a vaccine that still needs to be developed.
