Race to find Ebola cure continues
International Business Times - 10/14/2014
A group of researchers at the Laboratory for the Modeling of Biological and Socio Technical Systems at Northeastern University in Boston has projected the countries that are most at risk to Ebola by the end of October. The United States, France, United Kingdom, Canada and China were among the countries named. Their research is based on projections using a single imported case of Ebola and not an actual outbreak in the country.
The MOBS Lab researchers considered air travel and transport patterns in West Africa. Their report suggests projections can change depending on how much travel is restricted because of Ebola. Researchers note that severe travel restrictions to and from affected areas will result in a 3-4 weeks delay in the spreading of Ebola. Latest reports said more than 4,000 have died from the virus.
