Ebola is a virus that has a 90% death rate once a person is infected.  It is a terrible disease that has no cure or vaccine.

Ebola: Why isn’t there a cure?

There are five strains of the virus with the deadliest spreading throughout West Africa.  (See: What is the Ebola Virus?)

The main source of contraction is the Fruit Bat.  Other animals contract it from the bat which eventually makes it way to humans where the virus grows quickly due to our weaker immune system.

The virus had been contained in West Africa but has now spread to Europe and the US.  It can take 60 days before an infected person will show the first signs of the virus.  So, there are likely many other people infected but not showing signs and who will continue to spread the virus.  The WHO is estimating that up to 20,000 people may be infected by November 2014 (story).

Statements from medical teams:
Some of the medics have already witnessed many deaths at the camp. They “never had to deal with this many bodies in these few days on any job before.”
You can be helping somebody by getting them a juice, or a glass of cold water, or whatever he wants because you know really he has very little chance to survive, and then less than an hour later he is dead,” 
Then when you are putting his body in the bag, another one behind you has died. Then another one. One old woman died with very bad external bleeding from her body, the symptoms that are the worst of Ebola. It is very difficult.

  1. This post is such bullshit. Real journalists site resources. This is full of scary pictures, half of which aren’t even people with ebola, and made up information. I guess Absolute News is absolutely full of fear porn, and crap.

  2. Thank The Almighty God for The Court and this ruling. We need God so much in the United States. "It is the radical atheists that don't and they want everybody to choose their way. Well I have a choice too. I believe in God, in Jesus the Christ and the Holy Spirit.
