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.
