Ebola is indeed a great scare. News coverage of the outbreak, which has included sensational and heartbreaking stories of bodies of Ebola patients left to rot in the streets, clashes brought about by resisting quarantine, and narratives that have bluntly declared that there is “no end in sight” to the outbreak have indeed painted a picture of impending doom. As of 4 September, the virus has resulted in 1841 deaths in the three worst Ebola-hit West African countries of Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea since its outbreak in March, according to the latest update from the WHO issued that day.
