    This hospital is one established by Franklin Graham's "Samaritan's Purse" and initially treated those who came in contact with the first victim, Patrick Sawyer, a consultant for the Liberian Ministry of Finance. He arrived on a flight from Liberia to Lagos, Nigeria a week ago, and died within a few days.

    There are fears in the international community regarding the fact that the traveler from Liberia could board an international flight. Other passengers could take the disease beyond Africa due to weak inspection of passengers and the fact Ebola's symptoms are similar to other diseases. As of today, five countries are on high alert, looking for patients with Ebola-like symptoms, as several diseases, including the initial stages of H1N1, resemble the disease.
