Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) is an epidemic, spread in parts of West Africa. This Ebola outbreak is the largest in the history, affecting many thousands of people. The first reported case of the Ebola Virus dates back to December 2013, near Guinea. Travellers took it across the borders and by March Liberia had reported eight and Sierra Leone six suspected cases. Since then the numbers of Ebola cases are not only increasing but also accelerating. As of October 8th, 8399 cases and 4033 deaths had been reported worldwide, majority in the above mentioned countries. Many suspect these estimates are badly underestimated.
There are no licensed treatments or vaccines against Ebola, although scientists are working all out to rectify that. The inadequacies of the health-care systems in the three most affected countries, explains how the outbreak got this far. The health-care workers in the affected countries are particularly vulnerable to the virus. As of 5th October there were 390 cases among medical staff and 277 deaths. Source:Economist.com
Outbreak of Ebola is not just a medical emergency but an economic emergency as well. Affected people cannot go to work: and fear of getting affected is keeping the healthy ones at home. It has disrupted the transport, travel and the daily routine of life for people living in the affected countries which will further lead to increase in poverty, food insecurity and hunger.
