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 Frontiéres 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 up-scaled on anunprecedented 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.
