Billionaire Mark Zuckerberg is putting his best foot forward to fight Ebola…

Via Forbes:

Weeks after showing how his company’s might could boost the campaign to curb another deadly disease, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg is throwing his name, and his millions, behind the fight to stop the current Ebola outbreak from becoming an epidemic.

The 30-year-old CEO is donating $25 million to the Centers for Disease Control Foundation, saying in a Facebook post that a timely response now could prevent the hemorrhagic infection from becoming “a long term global health crisis that we end up fighting for decades at large scale, like HIV or polio.” He says the money will go toward training of “frontline responders” and screening of possible victims.
