My essential question: Why is Ebola such a big problem in Africa?
The green monkey gave ebola to one person and then it keep spreading.
This photo shows how much protective gear workers have to wear when they are in contact with ebola.
Some of the countries that have gotten ebola are Guinea - 3,811 cases, 2,543 deaths and Liberia - 10,675 cases, 4,809 deaths and the U.S with 4 cases, 1 death.
Ebola could be considered moderately contagious, because the virus is not transmitted through the air. It is transmitted through contact with body fluids.
The first human outbreaks occurred in 1976 in Central Africa.
