The current Ebola virus outbreak in West Africa was first reported in March and has quickly become the deadliest epidemic of the disease since its discovery in 1976.

As of September 2,105 people had been reported to have died from the disease in four countries in the area: Liberia, Guinea, Sierra Leone and Nigeria.

Nigeria had its first case of the disease in July and in the same month two doctors died in Liberia and Sierra Leone. Senegal reported its first case on August 29.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared an international public health emergency.
