Members Only Subscribe to read the full article

Ebola may be out of most news headlines, but it has not completely vanished from West Africa.  Although the health situation has dramatically improved, there were four cases of Ebola reported in Guinea last week, and Sierra Leone reported five new cases in mid-September. The Special Representative on Ebola Response for the World Health Organization (WHO), Dr. Bruce Aylward, believes that the goal of zero transmission “remains very possible within 2015.”

Since the first confirmed Ebola case in December 2013, there have been a total of 28,424 reported cases, 11,311 of which ended fatally, making this the deadliest Ebola outbreak in history.  By the time the WHO declared Ebola an “international health emergency” on August 8, 2014, the disease had spread from Guinea to Liberia and Sierra Leone, and the same strain would go on to infect individuals in Nigeria, the U.S., and Spain.
