This map shows you how large a continent Africa is. Notice that the US fits in just one corner of Africa! There are only three countries in Africa that have the Ebola virus, (Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia) and they are all small countries in West Africa. Tourists visit Southern and Eastern Africa and it is over 3,500 miles from the affected areas to Kenya. The distances are vast in Africa from these three countries and the rest of the country. To give you some idea of the distances, Nairobi, Kenya to Freetown, Sierra Leone is
3,509.66 miles and Sierra Leone to London, England is over 3,061,67 miles. To keep this in perspective, the distance between Los Angeles and New York City is 2,776 miles.
