The Ebola virus is a severe and often fatal illness in humans, with an average fatality rate of more than 50%. The virus is transmitted to people from wild animals and spreads further through human-to-human transmission. Beyond the human suffering and loss of life, the disease has a devastating impact on the security, economies, and healthcare systems of the affected regions.
