Ebola by Kent Ong

Summary : Ebola was found since 1976.  During 2014, there was an outbreak of Ebola. Ebola is a disease that can cause death. At first , Ebola was started at Uganda and Sudan, however last year's outbreak started at Guinea which was unexpected as it was not infected before. Ebola can be spread through close physical contact with infected people.When a person has died from Ebola, their body will have a very high viral load. Bleeding is a usual symptom of the disease prior to death. People there are affected badly as hugging , kissing , touching and washing is part of their religious worship when someone dies. People there are not educated thus do not know how to handle and prevent themselves not getting infected. Thus this resulted in the outbreak of Ebola. 

Opinion: In my opinion , personal hygiene is very important. Keeping oneself clean can help to prevent such diseases. Being considerate is also very important . Example when you are infected with a virus which has a symptom of cough or flu , wearing a mask will help to not spread the virus as it can be spread through the air. Lastly , I think that education is very important . Education not only teaches us a subject but also teaches us how to protect ourselves.
