WASHINGTON, D.C. (Worthy News)-- The recent outbreak of Ebola in West Africa is now entering a "second wave" and raging "totally out of control", Doctors without Borders told the Associated Press.
"The reality is clear that the epidemic is now in a second wave," Bart Janssens, operations director for Doctors Without Borders in Brussels, told the AP. "And, for me, it is totally out of control."
The virus has been spreading since spring in three West African countries with fluid borders — Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia. The biggest outbreak affected 425 people in Uganda in 2000, killing 224 of them. There’s no good treatment and no cure for Ebola, which is highly transmissible. -- Source
