Nova's documentary takes us back to 1995 during an Ebola outbreak in Zaire, Africa and follows medical researchers and doctors as they try to stop the virus and suggest methods for future outbreaks. We will be reflecting on the medical officials' suggestions for prevention and treatment methods in 1995 and connect the documentary to the current devastating 2014 West Africa Ebola outbreak.
