Just in time for the long weekend

The West African Ebola outbreak (the recent outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo appears to be unrelated) continues to expand, now into Senegal:

The first case of Ebola has been confirmed in Senegal, a major hub for West Africa’s business and aid community, Health Minister Awa Marie Coll Seck told a news conference on Friday.

The minister said the case was a Guinean national who had arrived from the neighboring West African country, where the deadly virus was first detected in March.

Over 3000 reported cases so far, and over 1500 reported deaths. And both of those numbers are probably quite a bit lower than the actual counts.
