Ebola virus disease became a major global public health concern after the last outbreak originated in West Africa in 2014. The epidemic has affected 10 countries in 3 continents, with an estimated global mortality of 41%, highlighting how a disease known to be restricted to the African continent can affect directly or indirectly many countries in the world. In this work, we review different aspects of the virus, the disease and the current outbreak.
