  • The 2014 Ebola epidemic is the largest in history, affecting multiple countries in West Africa. A small number of cases in Lagos and Port Harcourt, Nigeria, have been associated with a man from Liberia who traveled to Lagos and died from Ebola, but the virus does not appear to have been widely spread in Nigeria. The case in Senegal is related to a man who traveled there from Guinea.

  • Did you know that if 70% of infected Ebola patients were able to be cared for in hospitals, the crisis would be on the road towards containment? Despite this finding, only 18% of Ebola patients in Liberia are receiving such treatment countries.

  • Evidenced by the CDC’s worst-case estimate, Liberia and Sierra Leone could face 1.4 million infections by Jan. 20 — more than 10 percent of their combined populations of about 10.3 million if swift and decisive action is not taken
