Useful Ebola virus disease graphics...

Good graphics can be really helpful to convey information quickly - and no-one has time to read words anymore right?


The one above came from CNN [1] and presents the number of cases that have been treated in the United States prior to the 11 or so contacts/associates of the last unidentified case being evacuated.

The second one, above, came form the European Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (ECDC).[2] These guys make excellent plane travel/infectious disease maps. This one shows that the UK has kept pace with the US in medical evacuations or repatriations of EVD cases, or suspected cases, from the hotzone in west Africa.
