A video posted to YouTube shows two adults pranking a young boy into making him think he has Ebola.

Seen wearing a surgical mask, one of the adults in the video reads a thermometer and another adult voice off-camera says he's got Ebola which causes the child to burst into tears.

Reaction to the video is mixed. Many commenters on the video think the adults went too far in their prank.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the 2014 Ebola epidemic is the largest in history, affecting multiple countries in West Africa. It has also been the focus of media reports in the United States since a man who contracted Ebola in Africa flew to Dallas where he later died in a hospital. Two nurses who attended to the man also contracted Ebola but have since recovered.
