Ebola Outbreak Worst on Record

Tuesday, July 15, 2014 | Worthy News / World News


WASHINGTON (Worthy News)-- The recent Ebola outbreak is the worst on record as its reached into the capitals of three countries in West Africa.

Ebola, a hemorrhagic fever that can cause its victims to bleed from the ears and nose, had never before been seen in this part of West Africa where medical clinics are few and far between. The disease has turned up in at least two other countries - Liberia and Sierra Leone - and 539 deaths have been attributed to the outbreak that is now the largest on record.

The key to halting Ebola is isolating the sick, but fear and panic have sent some patients into hiding, complicating efforts to stop its spread. Ebola has reached the capitals of all three countries, and the World Health Organization reported 44 new cases including 21 deaths on Friday.

There has been "a gross misjudgment across the board in gauging the severity and scale of damage the current Ebola outbreak can unleash," the aid group Plan International warned earlier this month. -- Source

  1. People around the world, are we ignorant before this creepy disease and wish not to comment? Be informed that you should close off any flight from Africa to your countries while you still can, as a minimum.
