From West Africa to the U.S. within 9 months

Ebola is the disease that caught the world by surprise and brought the international medical community together with one common goal – to stop the spread of the virus ASAP.

Ebola is a hemorrhagic fever known for it’s highly contagious nature. Once exposed to the virus, symptoms usually develop within 2 to 21 days. Symptoms include weakness, fever, aches, diarrhea, vomiting and stomach pain. Other symptoms may include rash, red eyes, chest pain, throat soreness, difficulty breathing or swallowing and both internal and external bleeding. If symptoms are not treated, more often than not will result in death – as with 50 to 90 percent of all cases to date. The virus is spread through unprotected human contact where exposure to infected bodily fluid occurs. In a rural city like that of Guinea, West Africa, where communities live in close quarters with limited medical access the virus has a breeding ground of epidemic proportion.

The first case was reported in December 2013, after a 2-year old boy had died from his fever. By March 18th 2014 that number reached 25. On March 24th, the World Health Organization (WHO) confirmed that Liberia and Sierra Leone had also reported a record number of Ebola cases. The virus had officially gone viral. On October 1st 2014 the first case was reported in the US. – it had left West Africa.
