BURTON, R. Ebola: Experiences from the field - Liberia. SAMJ, S. Afr. med. j. [online]. 2015, vol.105, n.12, pp.1006-1008. ISSN 2078-5135.

The experience of all those who have worked with Ebola during the current outbreak has been different, and varied by time and place. I worked with Médicins sans Frontières in Monrovia during October/November 2014. This was the first-ever outbreak of Ebola virus disease in the overcrowded and impoverished areas of a capital city; Ebola was spreading rapidly, and case management had to be upscaled on an unprecedented basis. It was also a time of many questions: for clinicians, these centred on how to optimise survival, and how to maximise care in a resource-limited environment.
