    ….There have been more than 4,300 cases and 2,300 deaths over the past six months. Last week, the World Health Organization warned that, by early October, there may be thousands of new cases per week in Liberia, Sierra Leone, Guinea and Nigeria. What is not getting said publicly, despite briefings and discussions in the inner circles of the world’s public health agencies, is that we are in totally uncharted waters and that Mother Nature is the only force in charge of the crisis at this time.

    There are two possible future chapters to this story that should keep us up at night…..

    The web site mentions a true story about an Ebola outbreak in Reston, Virginia in 1989 called THE HOT ZONE by Richard Preston.

    I'm not one for reading Steven King horror stories but he provides a great blub on the back of the jacket cover.

    Drudge Slammed For Reporting on "Out of Control" Ebola Virus

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UMumV9aQDKE

    Top doctors and virologists are now acknowledging what Infowars first reported over a month ago – that the Ebola virus has mutated, may have gone airborne, and could kill millions.

    http://www.infowars.com/experts-ebola-may-be-airborne-could-kill-millions/

    A top German virologist has caused shockwaves by asserting that it’s too late to halt the spread of Ebola in Sierra Leone and Liberia and that five million people will die, noting that efforts should now be focused on stopping the transmission of the virus to other countries.

    Jonas Schmidt-Chanasit of the Bernhard Nocht Institute for Tropical Medicine in Hamburg told Germany’s Deutsche Welle that hope is all but lost for the inhabitants of Sierra Leone and Liberia and that the virus will only “burn itself out” when it has infected the entire population and killed five million people.

    “The right time to get this epidemic under control in these countries has been missed,” said Schmidt-Chanasit. “That time was May and June. “Now it is too late.”

    It only took a month for the NY Times to catch up with Infowars.

    One of the things that will help stop a plague of Ebola is the better resources of modern countries and the higher education concerning basic medical steps.

    In Africa right now, much of the spread of the disease is from a number of contributing factors including a lack of basic medical resources, animistic based approached to medicine, and widely held cultural myths about treating the disease.

    This is not to say that a contagion wouldn't breakout in the West. However, it would be more contained if it did.

    And if you want to read something scary about Ebola, go read Clancy's The Sum of All Fears.

    WE should help the continent of Africa to industrialize so they can provide for their own mean. Tell the UN to take a hike and liberals to stop interfering with their progress just to fulfill their crazy global warming lie.
