Ebola virus: “So CNN doesn’t know where Nigeria is…” CNN goofs in new report

Yes, CNN goofs too!

The
news channels got it all wrong last night while running a story
concerning the spread of Ebola in Western Africa including Guinea,
Sierra Leone and Liberia.

In the report, CNN claimed there are
1,603 cases, 887 deaths and 55% fatality rate – however, while
highlighting the countries affected,  they accidentally highlighted
Niger for Nigeria.
Of course, the error is trending on the social moment at the moment.
A
Nigerian, Taiwo Odusote tweeted “Apparently, CNN doesn’t know where
Nigeria is” while another user, Temi Ige wrote “Yeah, so CNN doesn’t
know where Nigeria is…that’s actually really worrying”
A
non-Nigerian also said “CNN, that’s not Nigeria with the red, correct
the map, reminds me of the time CNN mistakenly labeled Brazil as Hong
Kong”
