Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan, who is a pediatrician, have donated $25 million to the Centers for Disease Control Foundation to aid in combating the Ebola epidemic in West Afric, The Washington Post reported Tuesday.
In a Facebook post announcing the move, Zuckerberg said the current crisis is at a "critical turning point":
We need to get Ebola under control in the near term so that it doesn't spread further and become a long term global health crisis that we end up fighting for decades at large scale, like HIV or polio, Zuckerberg stated.
The money will be used to aid in battling the epidemic in Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone by fulfilling, among other things, equipment, training, transportation, burial support, and contact tracing needs on the ground.
