Is anyone monitoring the Ebola situation in west Africa? This is a highly contagious killer virus that has spread to several African countries. Outbreaks in the past have been contained in remote villages, deep in the jungle in places like Zaire, Congo and Gabon which are further south of the current outbreak. Cases have recently been confirmed in the port city of Conakry, Guinea (population over a million). There have been cases/deaths in Liberia and now there is a suspected case in Ghana. Some of these places have airports that link to Europe. I'm keeping a close eye on this and praying that it is contained soon.
