Ebola Free Country
There has been no recorded case of the current Ebola outbreak in South Africa. The next thing you need to now is that geographically, despite being on the same continent, South Africa is much further away from West Africa than Spain, London, Paris and even Brazil. While it’s true that there are no oceans dividing each country within the continent, much like Europe, Asia and the United States, Africa is comprised of many different countries, cities, towns and areas. It is divided into four major quadrants - North, South, East and West. The massive size of the continent (it is larger than the US, Japan, China, India and Europe combined) means that countries in one quadrant are often situated vast distances from countries in another quadrant.
