The key is in Sharia law and how a traditional Muslim funeral is conducted.
When a Muslim dies it is the duty of the whole family – immediate or extended to participate in and conduct the funeral. First the body must be ceremonially cleansed (ghushi) by the immediate family (of the same sex of course), then the body is clothed in a plain cloth (the kafan), followed by the Janazah prayer, consisting of among other words four Allahu Akbar. The prayer is conducted standing up, not prostrate as in the five daily prayers, and anybody in the community may show respect by reciting the prayers.
The grave is shallow and dug perpendicular to Mecca. The body is then laid bare and sideways with the head facing Mecca, packed down by first the immediate family then by an extended group.
So we now have the whole family, and then potentially the whole community exposed to Ebola. This spreads from village to village until all are infected.
Into this Obama is sending 4000 battle trained troops to combat Ebola, but he is not issuing a travel ban.
This information is common knowledge (I took it from Wikipedia), but other sources corroborate this and are far more detailed. (And scary, knowing how contagious Ebola is).
And where is the press?
Here is a map of the most infected countries.
It started in southern Guinea, a Muslim country, then spread to North West Liberia, also Muslim province.
