The new Ebola in Gabon

Dear Anyone,
I am a Zimbabwean student at an international school in Wales.  We
 study the International Baccalaureate as an equivalent to 'A'Levels.
 Part of this curriculum takes the form of an extended essay in one
of our subjects.  Fascinated by the potency and alarming prevalnce of
Ebola in Africa, I proceeded to investigate and wrote an essay
designed for the education of others within Africa (ie: containing a
simplified explanation of the virus, its replication, pathogenesis,
and the questions that still abound.)
To get to the point though, the new outbreak in Gabon proves part of
my essay, in that there is a need to dedicate more to research on
Ebola.  If possible, I would like to get an update on the most recent
outbreak; strain analysis, fatality rate (at least so far).  The papers
here have remarkably little information.  Can anyone help?
Thanks
        Karin Alexander
