5 Pandemics That Were As Bad As COVID-19

Ebola

First identified in western Africa in 1976, Ebola is a highly lethal disease believed to have originated from primates. Initial symptoms are mild but later escalate to severe internal bleeding. The disease spreads through contact with bodily fluids of an infected person. The deadliest outbreak occurred from 2013 to 2016, causing over 11,000 deaths. Rigorous contact tracing and quarantine measures were crucial in controlling the epidemic.
