Billionaire Trail Blazers owner Paul Allen announced Thursday he was pledging at least $100 million to fight Ebola.The gift is believed to be the largest private donation to combat the deadly disease and support health care workers in West Africa.The gift from the co-founder of Microsoft includes an estimated $26.5 million already donated to organizations such as the American Red Cross, to pay for equipment, volunteers and educational materials, and the Centers for Disease Control Foundation, to establish emergency operations centers in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, the nations at the epicenter of the epidemic."Ebola is not somebody else's problem. It is ours," Allen said in a statement . "The entire global community needs to step up now with resources that match the speed and scale of this growing outbreak."The money will be targeted toward the development and manufacture of two medevac containment units, which the U.S. State Department will use to safely evacuate medical professionals from West Africa. In addition, Allen has partnered with the World Health Organization to increase its capacity to coordinate the logistics required to transport international aid workers.One of the challenges in recruiting medical professionals to treat people infected with the disease has been the lack of a clear medevac pathway should they become infected and require treatment.In addition, Allen has established the to pay the gap between what insurance will cover and transportation costs. The $2.5 million fund is designed as a dollar to dollar matching grant with the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation.Allen also said he plans to partner with the University of Massachusetts Medical School to provide medical workers and laboratory equipment in Liberia, with a particular focus on making sure that local hospitals are outfitted with decontamination equipment.And Allen has created a donation website, , to pay for treatment and containment of the disease as well as prevent the spread of Ebola.He also will fund the development and manufacture of two medevac containment units to evacuate medical workers from West Africa. One problem in recruiting enough health care workers to travel to affected countries, Allen's statement said, is the "lack of a clear medevac pathway should they become infected and require treatment."The donation plan announced Thursday comes on top of eight to Ebola-related programs that Allen has made since July.-- Allan Brettman网上博彩
