  • US Ebola weakness: Politics is policy

    BBC News - 10/27/2014

    Stephen E Flynn, the director of the Center for Resilience Studies at Northeastern University, says that the recent state-level responses, including the original, occasionally ham-handed efforts in Texas, “tell us a lot about the nation’s uneven preparedness for a deadly disease outbreak”.

    “The alarms that should be ringing around the country should not be centred on Washington,” he writes for Politico Magazine. “Instead, they should be going off in the nation’s state capitals and city halls to which falls the task of mobilising a response to infectious diseases and preventing their spread.”
