Class A Infectious Disease - EBOLA

Ebola is a disease that is transmitted by viruses. It is fatal in about 50 to 90 percent of cases. Almost 40 years ago in 1976, the disease was first discovered in Zaire, now the Democratic Republic of Congo. The ebola disease occurs in waves, the largest outbreak registered is in West Africa since March of 2014 and still ongoing.

I feel compelled to thank you guys for cleaning up the ebola. I remember hearing that no one would take the job and then you guys did, so you’re really like heroes. My family and I pray for your safety.

Thank you for taking on a very difficult job.
