Ebola Contact Tracers Need Two Very Different Skills

Factpod #14

Dr. Mosoka Fallah is head of Contact Tracing in Monrovia and one of the leading Ebola Fighters in Liberia. In this video he explains to Hans Rosling why contact tracers must possess two very different skills: on the one hand they need to be empathic with the victims and their families to build trust and good community relations; and on the other hand they must be like detectives with investigative skills to find and question the evidence in order to find and track all contacts.
Both skills are absolutely crucial for contact tracing to succeed, and eventually to eradicate Ebola.
