The countries that are experiencing the brunt of the Ebola outbreak in 2014 are the countries that have received the biggest investments from China for metal resources.
Check these maps of Chinese investment in Africa – http://www.heritage.org/research/projects/china-global-investment-tracker-interactive-map
Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Ghana have been the largest beneficiaries of Chinese investment for metal resources. Nigeria has received a lot of investment from China in general although not in metals and now the DRC is reporting cases, yet another country that has received substantial investment from China for metal resources.
Is this a coincidence? Of course it is a possibility.
I have zero knowledge of how a virus spread but this is what I would imagine.
The number of virus cases will either be increasing or decreasing exponentially in a natural outbreak.
When the virus is in the form that passes from person and is able to cause the typical symptoms the number of cases will increase exponentially as each person has contact with X number of people during their day.
When the virus has mutated to the point where it is no longer possible to pass on to other people and/or no longer has any effect the number of reported cases should decrease.
For the number of virus cases to increase in a linear fashion, as it is in Western Africa in 2014, is not something that I would expect unless the majority of people with the virus are only encountering one or two people during their day AND the virus is not mutating as it is passed from person to person. To the layman, it is as if the Ebola virus in the 2014 outbreak, the same strain, is being fed into the population through artificial means.
Here is a graph showing how the number of reported flu cases trend when there is a flu outbreak.
You can see that the number of cases increase exponentially and decrease exponentially during the cycle. This would back up my layman view that the 2014 Ebola outbreak in Africa is being fed artificially and I think what common sense would say you should expect, ie an exponential increase in reported cases or an exponential decrease. There should be nothing linear about an outbreak of a virus, in my layman’s opinion.
I would say this is unusual, couple that with the fact that the Ebola virus is occurring in the countries where China has invested the most money to obtain metals is something that could be worth exploring.

What is the motive for the Ebola virus in 2014 to be deliberately spread?
To give a pretence where troops can be sent into countries which have handed a large proportion of their metals over to a competing power. With the view of taking over that government in the name of containment with the goal of nullifying contracts that that government may have made pre outbreak.
Let us say that the 2014 Ebola outbreak and the connection to China is not a coincidence, can we predict the next countries that will report Ebola cases?
If we look at the countries which do not have reported Ebola outbreaks at the moment but have large Chinese investment in metals we can look to Zambia, Zimbabwe and South Africa.
