In the news this morning, an outbreak of Ebola virus in West Africa has spread to Guinea's capital and beyond its borders in an unprecedented epidemic, according to Doctors Without Borders.  A total of 122 patients are suspected to have contracted Ebola; 78 have died.  Ebola spreads in the blood and shuts down the immune system, causing high fever, headache and muscle pain. It is rare but creates panic because there is no cure and it is fatal in up to 90% of cases, according to Doctors Without Borders.
