Cobb compares Ebola spread to wildfire

Loren Cobb, Associate Research Professor in Mathematical and Statistical Sciences, explained in this report to the local CBS affiliate how the pattern of Ebola virus spreading in human populations mimics that of wildfires, and how ignoring the disease helps it spread. Cobb explained, “When it hits the densely populated zone, it’s completely out of control and goes through the poor suburbs of the city, and then it hits some folks who take airplane travel.”
