An interesting research paper published in “PLOS Currents: Outbreaks” on Ebola spread:

http://currents.plos.org/outbreaks/article/assessing-the-international-spreading-risk-associated-with-the-2014-west-african-ebola-outbreak/

Not as sensational or politically correct as news media, aimed at medical epidemiologists and public health professionals. Gets pretty technical, but still readable for most.
A lot of good factual data on previous and current Ebola outbreaks.

They forecast it will spread internationally with US & UK risk moderate.
