This is the August 7, 2014 hearing, "Combating the Ebola Threat," before the U.S. House Committee on Foreign Affairs, Subcommittee on Africa, Global Health, Global Human Rights, and International Organizations. From the Opening Statement of Chairman Royce: "Whereas 425 people reportedly were infected and 224 people died during the 2000-2001 outbreak in Uganda, over 1,600 cases and nearly 900 deaths have been reported in West Africa. It has been six months since the first case was detected, and the rate of new infections appears to be accelerating. […] What is different about this outbreak? Why is it so virulent? Has there been a change in the epidemiology of the virus? If not, is it spreading because affected communities don't have the necessary information or capacity to deal with it?" Statements, letters, and material submitted for the record include those of the following: Edward R. Royce, Chris Smith, Tom Frieden, Ariel Pablos-Mendez, Bisa Williams, Ken Isaacs, and Frank Glover.
