World Health Organization says Ebola is now an international threat

WEST AFRICA –  The World Health Organization now says Ebola is an international threat. They say Nigeria could be the next country on the list for the outbreak after cases of people with the infection started popping up there. So far, more than 930 people have died from Ebola.

The U.S. Agency for International Development is sending experts from the C.D.C. to Liberia to try to get a hold on the virus.

But not to worry, there’s no need to panic about it spreading in the U.S. just yet.  Doctors from the C.D.C. say they know how to treat it. Probably because the two infected people in the U.S., Nancy Writebol and Dr. Kent Brantly are recovering pretty well at Emory Hospital in Atlanta. Speaking of which Dr. Brantly made his first public statement on Friday saying he is getting “the very best care possible” and “growing stronger every day.”

Hopefully, the teams who are going to help, don’t go from being ‘caregivers’ to patients because just the whole thought of it ‘going viral’ in America puts a ‘strain’ on you.
