The economy would not sustain the outbreak of another plague and would easily plummet to the ground, causing a large problem to fix. The cause of the disease may have only affected one young boy, but the effects are substantial compared to the introduction of the virus. Deaths were taken from innocent people as they caught the disease by accident. The spread of the disease were caused by the violent actions taken by the African countries. Other Nation’s generosity helped aid the number of patients try to get better and survive. The final effect of Ebola was the lockdowns and shutdowns of facilities and companies.
