The Ebola virus is proving to be the deadliest microbe and most complex pathogen in recent history, specifically because Ebola Virus Disease(EVD) spreads within the context of social norms, such as embracing, or touching while caring for an infected carrier or contaminated environment. The alarmist nature of the American tabloids and cable news is causing anxiety and spreading fear and misinformation about the EVD.

Health-?care costs and illness from the effects of the disease contribute relatively little to its economic impact, according to a World Bank report. Rather, eighty to ninety per cent of the economic effects are due to the “fear factor,” which shuts down transportation systems, including ports and airports, and keeps people away from their jobs.
