Last year, an Ebola outbreak in Africa was at its worst. It killed thousands of people before being announced as no longer threatening. Ebola is a disease usually transmitted to humans through direct contact with blood or other bodily fluids of a person with the virus.
Now the Ebola virus has returned. The World Health Organization (WHO) reported the outbreak in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) in Central Africa last week. According to WHO, there are 19 suspected cases of Ebola and three confirmed deaths. The organization also said that the risk of exposure is very high.
Isolation centers will be arranged in the case that the outbreak spreads and becomes worse. As of now, there are no vaccinations to help prevent the disease.
