- Outbreak contains links and information on the ebola virus among more general infectious disease resources. Special features include an article on filovirus prevalence, information on the American Red Cross, donations, the U.S. humanitarian response, a glossary, the CDC's (Centers for Disease Control) report on the ebola outbreak in Zaire in 1995, a searchable Ebola bibliography, a JPEG file on the infections and deaths from 1995 outbreak, and an FAQ file. Probably "the most complete source of information about Ebola on the Net". All the breaking news about this deadly African virus is here: exhaustive links to other sites, phenomenal graphics (including detailed maps of Zaire, where Ebola has recently wreaked havoc), and hypotheses about the disease and its origins. Especially impressive: the chronology of events related to the ongoing crisis, each linked to a media or governmental source and updated daily. Incredibly strong use of the Net.

West Nile Encephalitis
West Nile (WN) virus has emerged in recent years in temperate regions of Europe and North America, presenting a threat to public, equine, and animal health. The most serious manifestation of WN virus infection is fatal encephalitis (inflammation of the brain) in humans and horses, as well as mortality in certain domestic and wild birds.
