In the article “Ebola, Poverty, and Racism”, Thadeus Pato claims that the Ebola virus is not a new discovery, that Scientifics discovered the disease back in 1976. The last epidemic before this present one was in Uganda and in Congo, in 2007. The disease is transmitted through body fluids. Even if it dies immediately when it is outside the body fluids, the mortality is still high because the virus “likes to multiply”. In fact, the Ebola virus does not come from human, it comes from bats. Human contracted the disease by accident. The sociopolitical situation in Africa is not easy.
