In the article "Why is Ebola Less Deadly in America than in Africa?", published on Vox and written by Julia Belluz, the Ebola outburst in America is discussed. In addition to this, Belluz compares the Ebola outburst in America to the African situation, where people have been exposed to it for quite a while. The author begins by explaining that Ebola is a condition where people "die from multi-system organ failure" (Beluz). She then goes on by stating that we used to believe that Ebola was incurable, but that with its appearance in America, we have realized that it is, in fact, treatable.
