Since the virus was first discovered in 1976 near the Ebola River in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, sporadic outbreaks have occurred over the years. But in 2014 the spread of the disease reached epidemic proportions in West Africa, resulting in more than 10,000 deaths. The countries most affected were Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone- there were some cases in Nigeria, Senegal and Mali but to a lesser degree. The United States had four cases: one was a Liberian man who had traveled to Dallas and died there after being misdiagnosed- the other three were health-care providers who all recovered.

This TBook, a compilation of articles from The New York Times, traces the rise of the Ebola virus. For its coverage of the most recent outbreak, The Times was awarded two Pulitzer Prizes in 2015: the staff won for international reporting and freelancer Daniel Berehulak won for feature photography.
