Outbreaks of Ebola around the world

Fotografía microscópica del virus Ébola

Two distinct outbreaks of Ebola virus disease are currently ongoing in Africa: the outbreak affecting various countries in West Africa; and another outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The WHO distinguishes between two categories of country affected by the outbreak in West Africa based on the intensity of transmission: those countries in West Africa with widespread and intense transmission (Guinea-Conakry, Sierra Leone and Liberia) with 13.567 cases; and those countries with localised transmission (the USA with two cases and Spain with one case, currently in recovery). Nigeria and Senegal are now considered by the WHO as Ebola-free countries.

For the time being, the outbreak of Ebola in West Africa is affecting the westernmost countries in a highly localised fashion.
