No, please don’t catch Ebola today. That would be bad as we are a small campus so it would likely spread to the rest of us very rapidly. But in all seriousness the Ebola outbreak has already spread to four countries in Africa and is killing over half of those it infects. This tragedy will be addressed on Thursday by Joan Slonczewski and David Suggs, professors of biology and anthropology respectively.
This panel discussion will cover such topics as where the virus comes from and how it has spread so fast. Elaine Flowers, Infection Preservationist at Knox Community Hospital, will also be on the panel, talking about what would happen if Ebola came to Knox County.
