Ebola is a rising crisis.
Debate Rounds (1)
Ebola is most definitely a rising crisis, and may even become as severe as 'The Black Death', which took the lives of an estimated 75 to 200 million people in the years 1346-1353, mainly in Europe, and which was also described by Wikipedia as "...one of the most devastating pandemics in human history".

Reasons for voting decision: Conduct - Tie. Both had proper conduct throughout the debate. S&G - Tie. Both had adequate spelling and grammar. Arguments - Con. While Pro presented a compelling case, Con was able to overcome it with ease after showing that it's only transferable via liquids - thus showing that it's not as dangerous as 'The Black Death'. Con also showed how some countries have completely eradicated it while also showing that the death rate has been declining when compared to other more pressing diseases currently in Africa. Due to Con showing that it isn't as infectious as Pro would have us believe, he wins arguments. Sources - Con. While pro did quote wikipedia, it was con who actually cited a source. Due to his citing a source rather than just quoting one, these points go to Con. This is a clear win for Con. I would also recommend that Pro stay away from 1 round debates, they don't let you provide rebuttals to whatever your opponent presents which ultimately hurts your chances of winning.
