Ebola marks a dubious birthday this weekend. Guinea first confirmed the current outbreak of the virus on March 22, 2014, and by the time the world took notice, the situation looked dire: Last September, the CDC saw a possible worst case scenario of as many as 1.4 million cases. But the world health community proved up to the challenge, and while the virus has sickened nearly 25,000 and killed more than 10,000, it has fallen short of the worst-case predictions.
