It would be hard to imagine anyone who hasn’t heard of the deadly virus sweeping through Africa. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the epidemic has claimed nearly 5,000 lives, and the number is expected to rise.
Up until recently, the disease’s outbreaks were small and centered in rural communities. But soon Ebola began spreading like wildfire. It landed in densely populated environments, like Guinea and Nigeria, and even made its way to the United States. Estimates suppose that if a solid solution and better response aren’t implemented, the number of infections could reach 1.4 million by January.
