Ebola's Economic Impact



Ebola's Economic Impact


The Ebola epidemic had a serious economic impact on the countries where people were infected, as well as those who gave aid. This infographic explains the loss of workforce, GDP losses, and the serious impact on the healthcare providers in Sierra Leone, Liberia, and Guinea. It also explains the impact of Ebola on other lifesaving healthcare services, as well as the effects on children. In addition to the effects on those three countries, multiple governments spent billions in order to stop the spread, this aid being reflected in travel as well as new healthcare services and training.
