|Ebola Puts the World on Edge
The growing Ebola epidemic has world governments in a state of panic and people everywhere on edge. In March of 2014, the World Health Organization (WHO) reported that the latest outbreak of Ebola had been traced back to a two-year old child in Guinea, who died in December of 2013. Since then, the virus has spread to the neighboring nations of Liberia and Sierra Leone, and there have even been a few reported cases in the United States and Spain. As of October 2014, there were more than 10,000 reported cases of Ebola and nearly 5,000 deaths. The WHO, however, believes the actual numbers are much higher.
持續擴大的伊波拉傳染病已使世界各國政府陷入恐慌，並使各地的人們緊張不安。2014 年三月，世界衛生組織公布伊波拉病毒最近一次的爆發要追溯到一個在 2013 年十二月過世的兩歲幾內亞孩童身上。此後，這個病毒已擴散到賴比瑞亞和獅子山的鄰國，而且甚至在美國和西班牙都有一些通報案例出現。2014 年十月時，有一萬多件感染伊波拉病毒的通報案例且將近有五千人死亡。然而，世界衛生組織認為實際數字遠高於此。
