Ebola outbreak is the new norm? Is it getting worse? Sure seems like it. Hospital situations!

The world is entering “a new phase” where big outbreaks of deadly diseases like Ebola are a “new normal”, the World Health Organization has warned.

The WHO said countries and other bodies needed to focus on preparing for new deadly epidemics. BBC
