What three points, details or references from the article did you follow up on to advance your understanding of the issues and actors described in the article?

  1. With the lack of understanding of new disease (in this case, Ebola for the villagers), the trust crisis is easily raised up between publics and aid workers due to the fear of unknown things.
  2. The number of death been announced can violate the faith that publics put into the aid workers. Acts of violence are the fears from the publics.
  3. There is a lack of medical education in the area like Western African, Ebola has been there for three times since 1970s, and the publics still not having the correct perception on the disease awareness.
