Come next week, the United States president, Barack Obama will get personal briefing on the Ebola virus situation in West Africa from medical experts working on the epidemic, and he will also use the opportunity to lay out his government’s response plan for combating the deadly epidemic.

Four American doctors and nurses have contracted the fatal disease but were lucky to have survived after being flown back to the US for treatments with experimental drugs and blood serums. The disease has however killed over 2,550 victims according to the World Health Organization (WHO) and over 4,300 currently infected with the epidemic in West Africa.

A British and German medical officials were also flown back to their respective countries after contracting the deadly Ebola virus while treating patients or working in isolation centers in West Africa, and this incident among others have brought great concern to major countries of the world. The West African countries mostly affected were Liberia, Sierra Leone, Guinea, and recently Nigeria.

President Obama will be visiting the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) next week Tuesday to receive a first-hand briefing over the epidemic, and to also discuss the White House response to the Ebola crisis. The disease threatens to affect almost all countries of the world with a very high fatality rate.

Although the United States has offered more than $100 million to help affected African countries combat the terrible disease, the president will also be thanking medical doctors, scientists, nurses, and other healthcare workers working in West Africa and within US hospitals, labs, and university research centers to combat the fatal disease.

Ebola has proven to be the most fatal epidemic in recent decades, and this current epidemic has killed over 2,550 within a space of six months, making this the most deadly assault on affected people within Ebola’s 40 years history. The last time it surfaced before this present time was in Congo in 1976.

    This problem may prove intractable, because right now, experts are unable to trace who has come into contact with infected patients. In addition to health care workers, what is needed is significant investment in education and outreach within the affected countries to make sure people understand what the virus is, and what it is capable of. Sadly, what is happening here is a deadly confluence of poor sanitation/health infrastructure, and poor education.

    Since Africa is one of the worlds largest & fastest growing Muslim Strongholds; I say turn away.
    Why bother saving future killers. If it’s such a problem for them let the Radicals solve it. The innocent Muslims they are killing for not falling in line with their warped philosophy far outstrip Ebola deaths.
