Ebola is the most transmitted viruses in the world, the epidemic of 2014 (there were a lots of epidemics before) since 25-03-2014 until 13-8-2014 were two thousand and one hundred twenty seven i.e. 2.127 people infected by the virus. An average of 15 persons is affected every day and yet many cases are not recorded as they infected and died without coming into the record.


2. Ebola is the one of the most severe viruses in the world. On propinquity, in every single second a person who was infected with it is dying atrociously which in result gives an average of 50% mortality rate. For instance HIV Aids : Almost 35.3 million people have suffered from Aids worldwide every year and 2.3 million infected and 1.6 million deaths occurred every year which in turn results in the mortality rate of 4.5% per year.

Some days ago, it was announced in USA about the vaccine development in some medical firm and on estimation it might be released in 2015. But until then there will be many people infected or die by Ebola virus. Its infection is increasing drastically in the world and on an average the infection rate of Ebola virus has increased upto 15 people per day. But yet its growth is intensifying more and more every day.
