HideShow timer Statistics

The recent surge in fear over the virulence of the
Ebola virus is irrational and unfounded. While in 1996
only 66 deaths worldwide were directly attributed to
Ebola, some 603 deaths were caused by the influenza
virus in the United States alone in that same year. Yet
no such hysteria has surrounded influenza, despite
the significantly higher number of fatalities.

Which of the following pieces of information would
be most useful in evaluating the logic of the argu-
ment presented above?

The geographical distribution of deaths directly
attributable to the Ebola virus

The incubation periods for a range of tropical
viral diseases

The probable cause of an outbreak of infection
by the influenza virus in selected regions of
the United States

The relative survival rates for individuals
infected with the Ebola virus and for those
infected with the influenza virus

The numbers of deaths attributable to other,
non-viral diseases with similar origins




IMO D

Don't post the answer or what you think is the answer.

Agree with D though as it will help determine how fatal each of the virus is
