Yes, you might be kind of confused but let me clarify your confusion. Around 2014, Ebola virus disease, also known as Ebola, which is rare and severe existed but envisaged in Nigeria by 2015

The virus is transmitted to people from wild animals and spreads in the human population through human -to- human transmission from Bats&Monkeys. Vaccines to protect against Ebola used then was Sanitizer and it was d talk of town.

There was no licensed treatment proven to neutralize the virus same as Corona. However, Pregnant and breastfeeding women were the most Vulnerable to Ebola unlike Corona in which Aged and children are d most vulnerable. The Ebola virus caused an acute, serious illness which is often fatal if untreated. First outbreaks of Ebola took place in Guinea, Sierra Leone Liberia and Nigeria.  Corona virus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a newly discovered corona virus.

Most people infected with the COVID-19 virus will experience mild to moderate respiratory illness and recover without requiring special treatment. Older people, and those with underlying medical problems like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease, and cancer are more likely to develop serious illness.
