What happens when somebody gets Ebola? CNN’s Miguel Marquez explains in the above video.
With its cartoon network kind of production values, the video makes accessible the facts behind this killer disease. There’s plenty that’s covered, much of it I was unaware of but there’s no mention of the possibility of the virus becoming airborne. I guess we’ll cross that bridge when, and if, we come to it.
Meanwhile the World Health Organization today announced that there could be up to 10,000 new cases a week of Ebola within two months, reports the Guardian. Over the past four weeks, there have been around 1,000 new cases of Ebola recorded each week.
As I’m writing this, Ebola has killed no less than 4447 people, mostly in western Africa.
