Expert Prediction: If Ebola Becomes Airborne, 1.2 Million People Will Die in 6 Months



Francis Smart an expert at the Michigan State University, in an article published in Econometrics by Stimulation, has predicted that if the Ebola virus does mutate into an airborne form, 1.2 million people will die from the disease, the Guardian reports.

Currently the World Health Organization (WHO) has predicted that Ebola will kill 20,000 people within the next six months. Smart argues that this number is based on the assumption that the virus will not mutate into a version of itself which travels though air.

Smart used an econometric stimulation model and based his calculations on the prediction of 20,000 infections in six months that the WHO had previously issued.
