What is Ebola?

Ebola is a virus that was first found in Sudan in the 1970’s. Nowadays we found it in a lot of African countries, but there have also been a few cases in Europe and in the USA. The main problem of this disease isn’t its transmission,the problem is that 9 out of ten people that have had it have died after two or three weeks

Another important fact is that we haven´t got a cure, and the disease has begun in Africa. So, developed countries aren’t given their first “cures” test to these poor countries, like Sierra Leona or Nigeria. 

However, we don’t have to worry about its transmission, because it is by fluids and not by air. It can be transmitted by blood, vomit, saliva, semen or other fluids. But, in Africa this fact is very dangerous, because they have no hygiene and they haven’t got protection clothing. 

In conclusion, developed countries have to do something with this dangerous disease or it will spread. In Spain we have had two cases, but we only pay attention to the issue and its danger when we have a case affecting a Spaniard and not when it appeared in Africa.
