Map: The World's Ebola Outbreaks

Ebola is one of the deadliest diseases on Earth, with a fatality rate as high as 90%. It causes bleeding from the eyes, ears, mouth and rectum and a bloody full-body rash leading to a quick demise. It’s one of a handful of diseases that are so deadly that governments consider it a threat to national security. Luckily, so far the cumulative death toll from Ebola has been limited to sporadic epidemics in Africa, although that may change. Here, courtesy of Blooomberg, is a map of Ebola's African outbreaks in recent history.

This map is relevant because as has been reported previously, In March, Ebola was reported in Guinea and neighboring Liberia, killing 93 people out of 151 suspected cases in the worst outbreak in seven years.
