Ebola epidemic

Even if Ebola has faded from the headlines, the danger remains. As the largest and most deadly outbreak of Ebola winds down, scientists and public health officials are looking closely at what it will take to finish the job and to prepare better for the next big crisis. The apparent success of a nimble and creative clinical trial for a vaccine is a positive and instructive outcome. But many of the most important lessons come from failures in preparedness.

Here you can follow Nature’s full coverage of the crisis, including the travails of reporter Erika Check Hayden who travelled to Sierra Leone in December 2014, along with recent research and archival coverage of Ebola’s past.
