Scientists Chart Ebola Risk

A new map identifies areas where animals are likely to be infected with the Ebola virus as a first step towards understanding where future outbreaks of the disease may occur.

This area covers seven countries which have already reported Ebola transmission from animals to humans, as well as 15 more countries which are likely to be at risk.
