Viruses of the disease get transmitted from wild animals to the human body. Then the disease spreads into the human population, through human to human transmission. Apart from human beings the virus also can affect the nonhuman primates like gorillas, chimpanzees, and monkeys. The disease was first discovered in 1976 near the Ebola River. Currently, the place is under the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Here in this study, ethical and moral dilemmas of the disease around the world will be analyzed.

According to Bordage and Dawson, a research question is one of the most important components of any research paper. It provides a clear picture of the research topic. A research question guides the research outcome. Without the help of the research question, a research paper cannot find the proper direction. Here, in this case, the research question is whether the world is facing ethical and moral dilemmas related to Ebola.

According to Enemark &amp. Selgelid, (2012), ethical and moral dilemmas are quite evident in the cases of various infectious diseases. They have stated that ethical and moral dilemmas are not new factors as far as infectious diseases are concerned. It is an age-old issue that the global fraternity is facing since long. The authors have categorically stated that nurses and doctors are also human beings. They have equal chances of being impacted by infectious diseases. But on the other hand healing patients is the fundamental objective for the doctors and nurses. So there is a huge scope of ethical and moral dilemmas.
