U.S. Cutting Funding For Project In Ebola Battle
Aug. 08, 2014
(Undated) -- An Ebola treatment facility in an African hospital is losing funding from the U.S. government. The National Institutes of Health won't continue funding for the project at a hospital in Sierra Leone. The facility was set up a decade ago to test and treat Lassa Fever. It's now being used to treat patients suffering from the Ebola virus. Funding for the facility, which is aligned with Tulane University in New Orleans, will end in November.
