Ebola Outbreak: At Least 100 Die in West Africa

Passengers with flu like symptoms — fever, diarrhea, or joint pain — aren’t allowed to fly.

“It’s probably one of the more complicated outbreaks because it is occurring in a very densely-populated urban area, unlike previous outbreaks,” he said by phone from Conkary, which has a population of 2 million.

Dr. Jagatic described it as the biggest known Ebola outbreak an urban area.

Health officials do not expect the virus to go global and stress that Ebola is not easy to catch, requiring direct contact with an infected victim’s bodily fluids.
