EBOLA

Latest Ebola Outbreak 


The current Ebola outbreak is centered on three countries in West Africa:

 

Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone.  The current Ebola outbreak is the most serious that has ever occurred, both in terms of the number of people infected and the geographic spread of the disease.  In response, the World Health Organization (WHO) has declared an 'international public health emergency' and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has raised its alert status to 'Level 1 Activation' - it's highest threat level.
