Five things you did not want to know about Ebola

Since March 2014, 932 people across Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea have died in what is now the deadliest outbreak of Ebola ever. More than 1,700 cases of the disease have been reported, with three new cases reported in Nigeria on Tuesday.

As the virus continues its deadly journey, here are some things you probably don’t want to know. RA'EESA PATHER reports.

There’s a whole lot of Ebola

To date, there are five known strains of Ebola that exist. They are: Ebola-Zaire, Ebola-Sudan, Ebola-Côte d’Ivoire, Ebola-Reston, and Ebola-Bundibugyo. Ebola-Zaire is the deadliest and it is this strain that is now sweeping through West Africa. Some researchers, however, argue that the outbreak virus is a newer strain of Ebola.

But the question remains: how soon can the spread of Ebola be stopped?
