Ebola Virus Likely to be Imported Into UK and France by October Ending



Apparently the world is at risk of the Ebola virus. With the way the virus keeps spreading, scientists say it could be imported into France and the United Kingdom before the end of the month.

Excerpt from Reuters:

Scientists have used Ebola disease spread patterns and airline traffic data to predict a 75 percent chance the virus could be imported to France by October 24, and a 50 percent chance it could hit Britain by that date.

Those numbers are based on air traffic remaining at full capacity. Assuming an 80 percent reduction in travel to reflect that many airlines are halting flights to affected regions, France's risk is still 25 percent, and Britain's is 15 percent.

"It's really a lottery," said Derek Gatherer of Britain's Lancaster University, an expert in viruses who has been tracking the epidemic - the worst Ebola outbreak in history.
