On January 27, 2015 BBC News reported on a speech delivered by the President of the World Bank in Washington, DC.
“The Ebola outbreak has been devastating in terms of lives lost and the loss of economic growth,” Mr Kim told an audience at Georgetown University.
“We need to make sure that we get to zero cases in this Ebola outbreak. At the same time, we need to prepare for future pandemics that could become far more deadly and infectious than what we have seen so far with Ebola. We must learn the lessons from the Ebola outbreak because there is no doubt we will be faced with other pandemics in the years to come.”
