The Ebola virus has already claimed over 700 lives in countries located in West Africa. There have been endless news reports of fear that Ebola will spread to other countries. Africa is a continent rich in natural resources and tourist attractions. The visitation of foreigners to certain countries in West Africa can lead to them contracting the virulent disease and returning to their homes unknowingly sick. Ebola can be transmitted upon contact with a sick person or animal. It is estimated that symptoms appear between 2 to 4 days, that’s enough time to leave a country before recognizing the sickness. I feel governments are taking careful precaution with this illness. I am not going to buy into the sensationalist news reports of Ebola spreading around the world. This is playing into a fear and almost making a mockery out of a serious issue. I feel news media can do better. What are your thoughts?
