Great new video from Gapminder …..Fits in REAL NICE for the development Gap topic. Talk about this in the exam and get closer to your A*
Firstly, it talks about the reasons Liberia has been less developed such as civil war and corruption
and then it talks about the impact of Ebola…..
Because Liberia is poor it has cramped overcrowded housing and poor hygiene and health so as soon as Ebola starts it is easy for it to spread among families and poorer areas
And when it starts to spread it causes poverty as people cannot work, because they are ill or looking after others and the country has to spend more on medicine than other things that could help it develop like education and transport and training
