the ebola weather report

MoBS Lab | The 2014 West African Ebola Outbreak is so far the largest and deadliest recorded in history. The affected countries, Sierra Leone, Guinea, Liberia, Nigeria, and recently Senegal have been struggling to contain and to mitigate the outbreak. We have developed a modeling approach aimed at assessing the progression of the epidemic in West Africa and its international spread under the assumption that the EVD outbreak continues to evolve at the current pace. 

Our results have been published in PLOS Currents Outbreaks. However, our modeling work has been motivated by the need for a rapid assessment of the EVD outbreak trends and the obtained results may change as more information becomes available from the EVD affected region and more refined sensitivity analysis can be implemented computationally. For this reason, the paper on PLOS Current Outbreaks shall be considered as a live paper that is constantly updated with new data, projections and analysis. 

In this web page we try to provide a home for such a "live" paper. More in general we link to constantly updated versions of the paper, new figures/analysis and supplementary data files.

BD would bet the Germans screen applicants' aptitude for their selected major...then it's free if you make the cut. That's how it's done other places where college is free, e.g., The Netherlands, even Viet Nam. None of this ridiculous quality-sacrificing manipulation to achieve politically-correct equal representation of genders and ethnicity. This has really trashed the quality particularly of medical and dental schools in the US - can't boot diversity admits for academic failure lest the school get sued for "discrimination." Faculty just 'looks the other way' ......
