  6. 6. How is it spread? Annotate your image with details of how EBOLA is spread The virus is thought to reside within the region's fruit bat population, with the bats carriers of Ebola, but unaffected by it. The bushmeat trade (the catching and eating of wild animals, including primates such as gorillas and chimpanzees), is thought to play a role in outbreaks of the disease. While cooking infected meat kills the virus, handling of the meat beforehand can cause infection. Once in the human population, the virus continues spreading through direct contact with blood, secretions, organs or other bodily fluids. The World Health Organisation has specifically noted traditional healing and burial practices in rural regions as a factor in the spread of the disease.
  7. 7. Describe the symptoms of EBOLA in your own words
  8. 8. Affected areas 1. Highlight the affected countries on your copy of the map 2. Describe the distribution of the affected areas. 3. Add details about the numbers affected in each country to your map.
  9. 9. Why is containing Ebola proving difficult? • The scientist who first identified Ebola in 1976, Dr Peter Piot says "Soap, gloves, isolating patients, not reusing needles and quarantining the contacts of those who are ill - in theory it should be very easy to contain Ebola,“ In practice, this is a difficult because much of the health care infrastructure has been totally destroyed in this region of Africa. • Testing for Ebola often requires blood tests – which is difficult to conduct in areas where strong cultural beliefs prohibit collection of a "life force". • In Liberia, some communities believe the outbreak is a hoax, and that health care workers have been sent to kill them. In one town, health care workers spraying chlorine – a cheap and effective counter to the spread of the disease - were attacked. • In Guinea, Medicines Sans Frontiers (MSF) doctors and medics were attacked by villagers who believed the clinical team had brought Ebola to their country. • Governmental response has been heavy handed. Liberia's president threatened to jail anyone sheltering or hiding suspected Ebola cases. • An un-coordinated rush by the international community to assist can also complicate efforts, says African governance expert Kim Yi Dionne, especially when it appears that no one is in charge. Summarise each reason (4 needed) containing EBOLA is difficult. Explain why each may make it difficult to contain EBOLA virus?
  10. 10. What is being done to try and reduce/ limit the spread? • http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa- 28798542 • What does the clip say is being done?
  11. 11. Why are these things being done? • For each measure below say why it is used and how it will reduce/ contain spread of EBOLA. 1) Shutting borders 2) Roadblocks in affected areas 3) Stopping international flights
  12. 12. How is Ebola affecting the economies of countries involved? • http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa- 28798542 • What impacts does the clip say the EBOLA outbreak is having on people in affected areas?
  13. 13. Task • Make an infographic about EBOLA- • Include- • Statistics of deaths • Countries affected • Ways it can spread • Signs and symptoms • Reasons why containing the spread is difficult • Make an WORLDE about EBOLA- • Include- • All the key words associated with today’s lesson on EBOLA. The bigger the word the more important it is!
