Getting To Know Ebola

The Ebola outbreak in West Africa is capturing the world’s attention. It is the largest and longest Ebola outbreak in history, and has taken the lives of more people than all other Ebola outbreaks combined. To make everything even worse, a second deadly impact of the Ebola outbreak is starting . As Ebola spreads, the number and severity of children in Sierra Leone and Liberia will increase dramatically. A company is working closely with health and aid agencies in Sierra Leone and Liberia to stop the spread of Ebola. People are educating communities about the virus, training community health workers on how to find and refer suspected Ebola patients, and building capacity to respond. But as the Ebola outbreak continues to spread in West Africa, trade between the three affected countries will decrease countries. Liberia, the country with the most people suffering from Ebola, is also the most dependent on external supplies so then people don't get their supplies. The closure of many border posts and the isolation of some regions is resulting in supply problems that has led to a noticeable increase of food prices in the markets. According to a company, the price of cassava in Monrovia, the Liberian capital, increased by almost 150% during the first week of August. Given this concerning situation, the World Food Program is stepping up its response as part of a regional emergency operation to provide food assistance to close to 1.3 million people mainly from areas under quarantine in affected villages the epidemic. Unfortunately, only 34% of the nearly $1 billion needed to accomplish this has been raised.
