Ebola is a virus spread by body fluids such as blood. It is not airborne. Flu is more contagious than Ebola. Ebola has a fatality rate between 25% to 90%. This is roughly similar to the fatality rate of untreated Bubonic Plague (30% to 90%).

"Ebola outbreak 'not global emergency yet'"
"The World Health Organization says the spread of Ebola in the Democratic Republic of Congo is not yet a global health emergency. "

"yet" ? This is easily the most frightening contagious disease right now. The stuff of horror movies.

What I am going to do is to make a board for each country then if there is a news post on a particular country you can start it on that board.

News and World happenings board - excellent idea. 

I am still trying to figure that out but I would say there is a two point test that determines celebrity status at least for the major ones. 

First Point: Are they verified on major social media such as Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, or Tumblr.
Second Point: Are they regularly tracked on gossip sites such as perezhilton.com, thehollywoodgossip.com, hollywoodlife.com
