Ebola is a deadly virus spread by bodly fluids or saliva that damages your central nervous system, it includes high fever, and bleeding. The most terrible detail is that there is no cure for this virus.The current outbreak has a mortality rate of about 55%. Ebola’s first outbreak was seen in South Guinea. In the western part of Africa more than 2,600 people have died from this disease and this count continues to rise. Officials are feared that more than 20,000 people could be infected by this Ebola outbreak.

People from outside countries like Europe and Amercia have come to these villages to try to stop the epidemic. They are doing this so the outbreak doesnt touchdown in other countries near by, because that would be catastrophic. This is why officials are doing everything they can to contain this disease. This is hard to do because villagers have become suspicious of officials attempts to stop these Ebola disease outbreak, thinking that they are starting it. Bodies of health workers,local officials, and journalists were found in a septic tanks near the city of Nzerekore and also the health team was pelted by the rocks so they dissapeared. A three-day lockdown is going on in Sierra Leone in an attempt to stop the disease from spreading.In order to contain and combat it, our government is partnering with the United Nations and other international partners to help the Governments of Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Nigeria, and Senegal respond just as we fortify our defenses at home.

I think the U.S government should not let U.S. citixens in or out of Africa until everything is settled, because if this touchdown anywhere other then africa then it would be a world problem. I also suggest all of the top scientists around the world should spend a lot of time to find cures to this disease through trial and error, until we succeed. I think every villager that fights against the officials that are trying to help should be killed because we are spending our time there to help not only there saftey but ours. It is scary to think that an epidemic like this could kill more than 20,000 people and it could continue because who knows how much this disease could wipe out our poulation

    how come scientists haven’t come with a cure yet? They are the first ones to come up with cures specially Americans, they are great on medicines.

    its easy to say americans shouldnt get involved until things are settled, but meanwhile are we suppose to let them die? when we know they cant defeat this virus on their own, they just dont have the technology, or money to do so. if america or Europe dont get involved then you will for sure see 20,000 deaths in a few years even moths depending on how severe this virus really is. If america doesnt let their specialized scientists and team in africa, they should still try to study this virus to find a cure. Building bases within africa is another way to take on this disease, so samples can be taken from victims infected with ebola. I believe this is the best way to solve the problem, the consequences are high but god is great and if we’re doing it for a good cause then god shall be on our side.

    Actually, they came up with a cure and they try it on monkeys. It worked out on animals, but human been had a totally different reactions on that cure.It is unbelievable that science had increase so much and still can not save hundreds of people dying because of ebola.
