Africa A-Z was established in 2004
A few facts about Ebola:
Africa is over 7000km (4349.6miles) from north to south so a very vast area (made up of 47 countries). There is no Ebola in South Africa or any of its neighbouring countries including the safari areas of East Africa like Tanzania and Kenya.
London, Paris and Madrid are closer to the outbreak area than most safari destinations in Africa including Nairobi (Kenya), Arusha (Tanzania), Cape Town (South Africa), Windhoek (Namibia), Lusaka (Zambia) and Harare (Zimbabwe).
Currently, there is no licensed medicine or vaccine for Ebola virus disease, but several products are under development.
Ebola is not an airborne virus. It spreads through human-to-human transmission via direct contact (through broken skin or mucous membranes) with the blood, secretions, organs or other bodily fluids of infected people, and with surfaces and materials contaminated with these fluids. This means that there is a very low risk for ordinary travellers as long as you avoid intimate contact with others.
The current outbreak in west Africa, (first cases notified in March 2014), is the largest and most complex Ebola outbreak since the Ebola virus was first discovered in 1976. It has also spread between countries starting in Guinea then spreading across land borders to Sierra Leone and Liberia, by air (1 traveller only) to Nigeria, and by land (1 traveller) to Senegal. Obviously as you have all probably heard, there have been some 'imported' cases in US, Spain etc but these numbers change on a daily basis.
The most severely affected countries, Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia have very weak health systems, lacking human and infrastructural resources, having only recently emerged from long periods of conflict and instability.
