As stated in the aritcle’s abstract, “The 2014 epidemic of Ebola virus disease in parts of west Africa defines an unprecedented health threat.  We developed a model of Ebola virus transmission that integrates detailed geographical and demographic data from Liberia to overcome the limitations of non-spatial approaches in projecting the disease dynamics and assessing non-pharmaceutical control interventions.”
