Deadly Ebola virus spreading, say WHO officials

Ebola Virus

The World Health Organization, also known as WHO, is reporting 50 new cases of the Ebola virus today.  
 

In all, the disease has triggered 500 deaths since February in the three West African nations of Sierre Leone, Liberia and Guinea. 

 
A WHO spokesperson said education is the key to preventing more Ebola deaths.  
 
“There is still a lot of resistance from the population to cooperate with health workers. They are still not willing to report to health clinics to get treatment,” says WHO spokesperson Fadela Chalib.
 
Ebola is a highly contagious virus that begins with a sudden fever, intense weakness, muscle pain, headache and sore throat.  
It is first transmitted from wild animals to humans, and if it is not treated, it can spread quickly from person to person, just by contact.
