|Case Fatality Rate for African Ebola patients||70%|
|Case Fatality Rate for American Ebola patients||11%|
The lone American fatality, Thomas Eric Duncan, was sent home from the hospital when he first sought treatment. Thus, the case fatality rate for American Ebola patients who receive prompt treatment is, so far, 0%.
Ebola is a serious and lethal disease, no doubt. But perhaps we have overestimated how formidable the Ebola virus is, and perhaps we have underestimated how much more vulnerable we are if we live in poverty in an underdeveloped nation.
