Ebola Virus & Global Health: Week 1

Ebola has been in the news for several months and over the next couple of weeks we will be talking about the virus and other global health issues.  This week we’re going to watch a short video narrated by Morgan Freeman that explains how the virus is transmitted from animals to humans.  It’s part of the program « Though the Wormhole », a show that explains science to people who do not have a scientific background.

As you watch the video try to answer these questions.

– How does Ebola work?

– What is the parallel that is made between the virus and the real world?
