New Attacks, Rollin and Cash

Patients were forced to evacuate a Médecins Sans Frontières Ebola treatment center set ablaze Sunday in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, where the outbreak's death toll has reached 546, Reuters reported.
 
And, WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus warned that response efforts risk backsliding if a $148 million funding gap isn’t filled. So far, under $10 million has been pledged, WHO reported.
 
There’s another huge gap in the Ebola fight: The retirement of renowned Ebola researcher Pierre Rollin, Helen Branswell reports in STAT.
 
During his storied 26-year career, Rollin headed up CDC labs working with the deadliest known viruses, but was also “able and willing to do nearly anything that needs to be done during an outbreak”—from data entry to burials. His contributions will be sorely missed.
