Fears about a global Ebola pandemic seem to be rising by the day. Over 3,800 people have died in the world's worst outbreak of the virus, according to the World Health Organisation. Interestingly, one place where there isn't too much concern is the United States. This is despite the fact that the first person diagnosed with the disease on American soil died, while a nurse that treated him has also become infected.
20 percent of people surveyed by the Pew Research Center said they have a great deal of confidence in the federal government preventing a major Ebola outbreak while 38 percent indicated they have a fair amount of confidence. There is still a small element of fear in American society, however, with just under a quarter stating they do not have much confidence in authorities handling any pandemic.
This chart shows confidence in the federal government preventing a major Ebola outbreak.
