WASHINGTON (TIP): Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg said on Tuesday he and his wife were donating $25 million to help US efforts to contain the deadly Ebola epidemic. “The Ebola epidemic is at a critical turning point. It has infected 8,400 people so far, but it is spreading very quickly and projections suggest it could infect one million people or more over the next several months if not addressed,” Zuckerberg said on his Facebook page. “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.” He said he and his wife Priscilla were donating the funds to the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Foundation. “We believe our grant is the quickest way to empower the CDC and the experts in this field to prevent this outcome,” Zuckerberg said.
