Ebola breaks out on a scale never seen before

After the passage of 80 years, the most deadly and dangerous virus “Ebola” is back in West African countries of Liberia and Guinea. The media reports claim that more than 88 people have been killed and the condition of thousands of affected villagers is serious.

Doctors hold the opinion that this virus is really terrifying. It can kill a big number of people within short span of time and there is no cure and vaccine to combat it. They said that only 1 out of 10 can survive otherwise recovery of Ebola affected patient is really difficult.

Besides, an epidemiologist of Doctors without Borders group Michel Van Herp said that “Ebola outbreak at mass level and the only way to stop it is to isolate people who have come into contact with it”. He further said that this virus causes bleeding, vomiting, diarrhea and organ failure.

Doctors without Borders group told in its press briefing that we have launched our mobile clinic but the public is not cooperating with us because people are frightened.  On the other hand, when a passenger found sick in aircraft bathroom, Air France had immediately quarantined its flight scheduled from Guinea to Paris.

Last but not the least, it is said that the source of Ebola is the bush meat and Guinea authorities are trying their best to battle against this serious virus.
