This is the worst Ebola outbreak in history. Here’s why you should be worried.

By Ishaan Tharoor July 28 at 2:12 PM
The worst Ebola outbreak in history has put a number of countries in West Africa in lockdown, led to the deaths of nearly 700 people since February and brought new reports of doctors, including Americans, contracting the virus they are attempting to contain. The situation is undeniably scary. Here’s what you need to know.
What is Ebola?
Ebola viral disease is a highly infectious illness with fatality rates up to 90 percent, according to the U.N. World Health Organization. Symptoms initially include a sudden fever as well as joint and muscle aches and then typically progress to vomiting, diarrhea and, in some cases, internal and external bleeding — you can see a full, grim description of symptoms compiled by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) here.
The virus spreads through contact with bodily fluids of someone who is infected. Reports of human infections usually first emerge in remote areas that are in proximity to tropical rain forests, where humans can come into contact with animals such as chimpanzees, gorillas and forest antelope. The consumption of bush meat is often a precursor to such outbreaks. The WHO says fruit bats are probably the natural host for the virus.

“He builds glass castles in the sky - translucent, transparent wonders, reflecting themselves on themselves and through each other, sewn together with whispers of clouds. They swirl through each other - it is difficult to tell where one ends and the other begins. They shimmer, forming glass rainbows in the sky, wavering in the light, as if they might vanish from a whisper. All who witness stare open-mouthed, too stunned to even applaud. The architect, eyes shining as bright as his wonders, allows himself a small smile. He awakens one night, and his eyes seem to open for the very first time. He blinks as his hands go from muscular to withered and trembling in a mere moment. His vision is dim, yet things are now dreadfully clear, and he wonders how the styrofoam mountains of Chinese food containers lit only by a sickly yellow bulb got there. Everything here feels empty, old, and alone. He does not know where the door is. In desperation, he turns his eyes upward, but the heavens are as empty as they always were, and the stars look back at him reproachfully, reflections of a life spent in the sky.”
