2. Discuss the route of transmission of the selected disease.
3. Discuss how an outbreak of the selected disease would impact your community at a systems level (e.g., the functioning of schools, local government, businesses, hospitals).
4. Explain what the reporting protocol would be if an outbreak of the selected disease were to occur in your community.

With the increased mobility of human populations, diseases can quickly spread around the world. In addition, changes in vaccination practices have revealed an increase in communicable diseases that were once thought to be under control. These global health issues present new problems for community health officials. The global communicable disease analyzed in this task is Ebola.
Description of Outbreak
The name of the chosen communicable disease is Ebola Virus. Ebola Virus gets its name from the Ebola River in Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) where it was first discovered in 1976. Ebola virus was first discovered in 1976 following two simultaneous outbreaks in two different countries (Jacob et al, 2020). The first two countries to be involved were DRC and South Sudan. Since 1976, Ebola Virus has spread periodically, infecting people in a number of countries in Africa. In addition to DRC and South Sudan, countries such as Guinea, Gabon, Liberia, Nigeria and Cote D’Ivoire, Sierra Leone and South Africa have been involved. Other Western and European countries have been involved too, including United States, United Kingdom, Russia and Italy. In both South Sudan and DRC, the first case was reported in 1976. In the same year, one case of Ebola Virus was reported in United Kingdom following an accidental laboratory infection from a contaminated needle. In Philippine, the infection was reported in 1989. In 1994, another case was reported in Cote d’ivoire after a scientist became infected with the virus. Gabon reported its first cases of Ebola Virus in 1995 following an outbreak in a number of gold mining villages (Dietz, Jambai, Paweska, Yoti & Ksaizek, 2015). In 1996, Russia reported its first case after a laboratory worker was infected with the virus.
