My colleague, epidemiologist and public health expert Dr. Ginger Cameron, joins me to discuss the ethics of the current Ebola crisis.
We ask some important questions:
- What’s going on in West Africa? Why is the outbreak so severe?
- Was it ethical to treat western missionaries with experimental drugs?
- What about enforced quarantine? Does that violate individual rights?
- How does medical triage work?
- What are the latest ethical challenges?
