This documentary, in the form of a satellite map, tracks the history of the deadly Ebola Virus that spread throughout central Africa between 1976 and 2015 and made headline news around the world. The Center for Disease Control describes Ebola as, “Ebola hemorragic fever (Ebola HF) is a severe, often-fatal disease in humans and nonhuman primates (monkeys, gorillas, and chimpanzees) that has appeared sporadically since its initial recognition in 1976”. This map tracks Ebola by color-coded mutated variations, local communities, ecoregions, bat migration ranges and global travel patterns using published media reports and World Health Organization alerts.
