LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) – In fact, there is a 50 percent chance a traveler carrying the disease could touch down in the U.K. by October 24, a team of U.S. researchers have predicted. Scientists used Ebola spread patterns coupled with airline traffic data in calculating the odds of the virus spreading across the world.
They estimate there is a 75 percent chance Ebola will reach French shores by October 24. Belgium has a 40 percent chance of seeing the disease arrive on its territory. Spain and Switzerland have lower risks of 14 percent each.
