An unprecedented outbreak of the Ebola virus has health officials scrambling to contain it; before the epidemic has a chance to spread worldwide, where officials worry it could become the most deadly pandemic the world has ever seen.
What started earlier last month in Guinea, has now been confirmed in two more countries; Liberia and Sierra Leone. Ebola, which first appeared in 1976, in one of the world’s most deadly viruses with a mortality rate of 90%. While previous outbreaks stayed relatively confined, because they occurred primarily in remote villages in Africa, this new outbreak is showing up in areas that have officials very concerned.
What’s most concerning to World Health Officials, is the fact that this current outbreak in being seen in places where the disease has never been seen. What was once confined to remote villages in Africa has now spread from the remote regions of southern Guinea to the country’s seaside capital Conakry, where some 2 million people live. Even more concerning is the disease may have already spread outside the capitol, with confirmed cases now popping up in Liberia and Sierra Leone.
