Today’s guest blog is from Courtney Roberts. Courtney, Consultant in Corporate Responsibility, is responsible for Lilly’s global product donations, including disaster relief and humanitarian aid.
 
Over the last few months, we have all been closely monitoring the Ebola crisis in Western Africa – and no doubt our vigilance has been even more heightened as we see these countries struggle to treat patients and contain the broader spread of the virus.
 
According to a WHO situation report released on October 17, more than 9,000 confirmed, probable and suspected cases of Ebola have been reported in seven affected countries. There have been more than 4,500 deaths. The situation in Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone is rapidly deteriorating, and the upward epidemic trend continues.
