"I was talking with some reporters recently, and one of them told me about a university teacher who believed that Ebola wasn’t real. He washed his hands at the door just because he had to. And that’s an intellectual, thinking it’s not real. So traditional public relations messages have not worked." − Pierre Mignault, Ebola Chrono radio program manager
