In the United States, some parents fearful of deadly Ebola pulled
children out of a school after the principal returned from Zambia, an
African nation far from the area hit by the disease. In Geneva, a top
U.N. official warned against anti-African discrimination fueled by fears
of Ebola. The disease has ravaged a small part of Africa, but the
international image of the whole continent is increasingly under siege,
reinforcing some old stereotypes.
