IT’S running rampant across west Africa and has already claimed nearly 500 lives. As the UN struggles to contain the deadliest ever outbreak of Ebola, the question on everyone’s lips is: Are we next?

A sense of panic is beginning to pervade Guinea, the epicentre of the outbreak, and neighbouring Sierra Leone and Liberia.

The death toll from the deadly haemorrhagic virus now stands at 467. There been a 38 per cent rise in the number of deaths in just a week.

And now, there are growing fears Ebola could spread further than the small corner of west Africa reeling from the current outbreak.

So, is it possible cases of Ebola could begin turning up in Australia soon? Is there a chance it will spread through Europe before making its way to our shores?
