Separating fact from fiction on Ebola

This chat featured:

  • Dr. Tim Jagatic, who works with Doctors Without Borders and recently returned to Windsor, Ont., from caring for patients exposed to Ebola in Sierra Leone.
  • The National correspondent Adrienne Arsenault, who was in Liberia covering the effects of the epidemic there.
