    The Next Plague Is Coming. Is America Ready? - The Atlantic Times

    Unlike airborne viruses such as influenza, Ebola spreads only through contact with infected bodily fluids. Even so, it is capable of incredible devastation, as West Africa learned in 2014, when, in the largest outbreak to date, more than 28,000 people were infected and upwards of 11,000 died. Despite the relative difficulty of transmission, Ebola still shut down health systems, crushed economies, and fomented fear. With each outbreak, it reveals the vulnerabilities in our infrastructure and our psyches that a more contagious pathogen might one day exploit.

    However, this morning confirmed the nation's worst fears. While COVID-19 seems to primarily target the old and sick, with a mortality rate of under 3% globally; Ebola carries a roughly 50-50 risk of death to all of those infected, even when factoring in treatment. Can the United States handle this new barrage of Ebola cases, as it continues to fight the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic? Only time will tell, but this is a devastating blow to an already disease-ravaged economy.

    Tracker:

    South Philadelphia, PA: 53 cases confirmed
    East Rutherford, N.J.: 53 cases confirmed
    Maryland (Landover, MD area): 53 cases confirmed
