TIME Magazine Names Ebola Caregivers as the 2014 ‘Person of the Year’
After much thought, TIME magazine has names the Ebola caregivers as the 2014 Person of the Year.
The Ebola caregivers beat out the Ferguson protesters and Russian President Vladimir Putin.
TIME magazine’s managing editor Nancy Gibbs explained, “The global health system is nowhere close to strong enough to keep us safe from infectious disease, and ‘us’ means everyone, not just those in faraway places where this is one threat among many that claim lives every day,”
“The rest of the world can sleep at night because a group of men and women are willing to stand and fight.”
This special print edition of TIME will feature Dr. Kent Brantly, Dr. Jerry Brown, nurse aide Salome Karwah, Doctors without Borders volunteer Ella Watson-Stryker and emergency driver Foday Falla on five different covers.
