There is Nothing to Worry About. What Could Go Wrong??? (Sarcasm)
Ebola Outbreak Could be Much Worse than Thought
From the article:
The worst outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus in history could actually be much worse than the official death toll reflects. Already, the World Health Organization says 887 people have died, but a top doctor working at the heart of the outbreak in West Africa says many cases are going unreported.
The doctor, who spoke to CBS News on condition of confidentiality, said the disease is spinning out of control in Africa partly because it is extremely difficult to contain it in a sprawling, congested city center.
Don’t you just love it when a doctor will only tell what is really going on……on condition of confidentiality? Is anyone even capable of telling the truth anymore?
Something to think about….if doctor’s who should know how to avoid contracting the disease are coming down with it…..that would make me think that it’s a bit more contagious than what we are led to believe. “Right or wrong?
lincoel African has 1.2 BILLION people. Since we identified the disease back in the 1970s, there has been 5,500 people, with approximately 3,500 deaths. News agencies need to stop creating panic. A person in Africa has a better chance of getting struck by lightening. An estimated 24,000 people are killed by lightningstrikes around the world each year and about 240,000 are injured.
milesperegrinus @lincoel Hmmm had a friend who was in China when the SARS epidemic broke out and he came down with it. he was working for our government at the time, but while he was being treated he saw at least 60,000 Chinese deaths, that they were stacked like cordwood. It got so bad that the doctors were fleeing the hospitals and the Chinese police were literally holding a gun to the heads of doctors to get them to go back to work. Yet if you look they only reported a few thousand deaths.
Nothing new in 1832 here the papers reported a railroad crew only 8 died from Cholera, yet they know today from railroad memos the whole crew of 57 died.
