How To Use The Ebolavirus Map.
There well over a hundred map markers on the map. When you do a search, all available information for each marker is compared to your search criteria. If you search for “Congo” then the search will return both marker headings and descriptions that match. If you want to search only the marker labels, then use “Congo;” instead. If you want to search for a particular strain of virus, then use the correct acronym. If you want to see outbreaks in a ceration year, then you can use “1976” or “1976.” to get the correct results.
