dc.description.abstractThe evolutionary origin of Ebolaviruses is not very clear. The simple notion that these viruses have been circulating for many millennia in wildlife in tropical parts of Africa, occasionally spilling over into human populations, often brought on by human activities, may not be correct or at least incomplete. Over time a number of Ebola disease outbreaks reported and a pattern in the outbreak response seemed to have been established. A lot was also learnt about Ebola viruses, their epidemiology and ecology. However, the 2014 Ebola outbreak challenges our understanding in many respects.en_ZA
