As my friend Emerson Tan rightfully points out, each one of those shortfall gap numbers represent essentially the price in lives these heroic nurses will pay. In his words, since working closer to the front lines with the UN on this more than anyone I know, and more authoritative:
So, these people really need Money to pay for supplies. The states involved are basically bankrupt. There needs to be an air bridge to these states to deliver these supplies. Every Ebola Treatment Unit needs to have a field kitchen, since right now families risk their lives to feed their loved ones. Cargo airlines need to be quit being squeamish and fly these supplies there in a timely fashion. Right now only Air Maroc and Brussels Airlines are still flying and they are backed up for weeks for cargo. Only the US, UK, and France are using a fraction of their strategic airlift capability to get supplies there. Red Cross, MSF, and others are tackling the problems on the ground, but the fear must be overcome and the bridge must be built.
