    Growing concerns the Ebola outbreak could spread globally by travelers

    Thousands are believed to have been infected by the virus, which can go unnoticed for three weeks and kills up to 90% of victims.

    Concerns have been expressed about the possibility of the current Ebola outbreak spreading globally after an infected airline passenger introduced the deadly virus to Nigeria. All outbreaks since 1976, when Ebola was first identified, have been confined to rural and forested areas in Africa, with the previous highest death toll being 280.
