Description
Join the African Studies Program for Africa at Noon, a weekly Wednesday event since 1973. In 2014 the recent West African Ebola epidemic was traced back to its ‘patient zero’ who is identified as a toddler from the village of Meliandou in the ‘Forest Region’ of the Republic of Guinea. This lecture probes for explanations and implications of ‘patient zero.’
