Michael Osterholm's speech on how much we don't know about Ebola is riveting.
Director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota, he lays out the truth of the matter: the Ebola virus is still an unknown, and we don't even know what we don't know yet.
He believes that to mislead the public by trying to not scare us is a terrible idea, and it's better for health officials to admit that they're wrong or don't have answers yet.
He also believes limited airborne transmission may be possible, that this strain of the Ebola virus may be very different than past outbreaks.
The virus is moving at virus speed, and our response is moving at the speed of bureaucracy.
We barely have a plan A, we don't have a plan B.
We desperately need a plan C. He says it's vaccine...and that's where he loses me.
