WASHINGTON — Warning that Americans are losing faith in their government’s ability to stop Ebola, Republican lawmakers on Thursday pressed for a ban on travel to the U.S. from the West African outbreak zone. The White House said other measures are more effective.
A: Ebola is a severe type of viral hemorrhagic fever in humans and nonhuman primates (such as monkeys, gorillas and chimpanzees). The first case was discovered in 1976 in what is now the Democratic Republic of the Congo near the Ebola River. Since then, outbreaks have appeared sporadically.
