COMPARE + CONTRAST
Mortality Rate of Spanish Influenza
It infected 28% of all americans. An estimated 675,000 americans died of the influenza during the pandemic, ten times as many as in the World War. The influenza virus had a profound virus, with a mortality rate at 2.5% compared to the previous influenza epidemics, which were less than 0.1% . Outbreaks swept through North America, Europe ,Asia, Africa, Brazil, and the South Pacific. In India the mortality rate was extremely high at around 50 deaths per 1,000 people.
Illness from the 1918 flu pandemic, also known as the Spanish Flu, came on quickly. Some people felt fine in the morning, but died by night fall. People who caught the Spanish Flu but did not die from it, but often died from complications caused by bacteria, such as pneumonia.
Approximately 20% - 40% of the world wide population became ill.
An estimated 50 million people died.
Nearly 675,000 people died in the United States.

EBOLA VS. SPANISH INFLUENZA
EBOLA
The first human outbreaks occurred in 1976, one in northern Zaire in Central Africa, and the other in southern Sudan. Ebola is extremely infectious but not extremely contagious. People can be infected by other humans if they come in contact with body fluids from infected people and sometimes even contaminated objects from infected people. Humans can also be exposed to the virus, by butchering infected animals. Ebola typacally attacts the internal organs. More than 5,800 people in Guinea, Liberia, Nigeria, Senegal and Sierra Leone have contracted Ebola since March. More than 2,800 people have died. Ebola has a fatality rate of 59%.

Spanish Influenza
It infected 500 million people across the world including Pacific islands and the Arctic. It killed 50 to 100 million people in the world. It was one of deadliest natural disasters in human history. Transportation made it easier solidiers, sailors, and civilian travelers to spread the disease. It was spread by solidiers from Fort Riley, Kansas at a hospital ward at Camp Funston.
Ebola
The lastest anlargest outbreak to date is the ongoing 2014 West Africa Ebola Outbreak. It's affercting Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia and Nigeria. Fruit bats are believed to carry and spread the disease without being affected. The symptons of Ebola limit a person's ability to spread the disease. Ebola can be spread by contacts with objects contaminated by the virus like needles and syninges.
SPANISH INFLUENZA
The first case of the spanish influenza occurred in 1918. It was first found in Europe, America, and areas of Asia. It then spread to almost everywhere in the planet within months. It was caught by human to human contact, coughing, sneezing, even talking. It occurred in the spring and was generally mild. the second case of the disease came in fall of the same year, and was highly contagious. people who got it died within hours.

Mortality Rate of Ebola
Ebola- Mortality Rate : The first outbreak of ebola infected over 284 people, with a mortality rate of 53% . A few months later, the second ebola virus emerged from Yambuka, Zaire, (Ebola-Zaire) (EBOZ). EBOZ with the highest mortality rate of any of the ebola viruses (88%), infected 318 people. Despite the tremendous effort of experienced and dedicated researchers ebola’s natural reservoir was never identified. The third strain of ebola, (Ebola Reston) (EBOR), was first identified in 1989 when infected monkey’s were imported into Reston, Virginia, from Mindanao in the Philippines. Fortunately, the few people who were infected with EBOR (seroconverted) never developed ebola hemorrhagic fever (EHF).
Current Mortality Rate : Latest figures from the World Health Organization (WHO) record 5,864 cases of Ebola in the West africa outbreak and 2,811 deaths- giving a death rate, of just under 48% .
