The deadliest outbreak of Ebola, a deadly hemorrhagic fever, started in West Africa in the spring of 2014 and began to spread rapidly in late summer. Most of the epidemic was contained in three countries -- Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia -- though there have been cases in confirmed in at least five other countries, including two diagnosed in the United States.
The latest World Health Organization figures report that more than 6,000 people have died from the outbreak out of more than 17,100 total cases. The contagious disease created a global epidemic that has not yet been contained.

Bullcrap!

The four countries of the world are as follows:
The Kardashians;
Kanye West;
Justin Bieber;
and...
Well at least you got Starbucks right.

When you next come to write about this subject, you should note that the plural of fallacy is fallacies. If you remember this, you won't seem as illiterate as you do based on the title of this thread.

@ashi099sh,
Given the information provided in your first paragraph, you've made a logical leap in the second stating that, "the contagious disease created a global epidemic that has not yet been contained," whereas previously you stated that the epidemic was contained in three countries with some confirmed cases in some other countries.

Some confirmed cases do not an epidemic make.

As well as Terrierland

Shhhh....The President of Terrierland is about to make a statement about some sort of outbreak. I hope no one has infiltrated with a red ball.
