Comments "The unusually rapid and far-reaching spread of the virus during the current outbreak has been facilitated by insufficient treatment and containment facilities in West African nations that had no prior experience with Ebola, a distrust of Western medical practices, the stigma associated with infection, causing failure to seek early treatment, as well as the long asymptomatic incubation period of the virus (up to 21 days), which enables dissemination through travel."
