    It was such a bad days when I came up to know about the Ebola effected persons and most of the effected persons came to dead end. There was also some conspiracies about this deadliest disease.

    What I newly red stated Ebola has been over-covered by media (some "labos" hidden campaign?) considering it very low umpact compared to endemic plagues in Africa killing very very more people every year - and the action of developped countries would have been very expansive when considering effective results - I've not the means to veirfy that...

    The disease is very serious. At the same time, it's clear that with the right treatment, some people can and do recover. The problem is that the U.S., for example, doesn't have the kind of facilities required to treat large numbers of Ebola patients. I don't think they can care for more than a dozen or so at a time and it is incredibly expensive.

    What also became clear from the mess they made of it in Texas is that in many hospitals the protocols were not set up and the staff were not properly trained, which doesn't exactly inspire confidence. Thankfully, New York, as usual, did a much better job. Still, as I said, they don't have the facilities to care for more than a few at a time.

    Given how common and fast international travel is today, I'm surprised that Ebola has so seldom appeared outside Africa so far. Imagine what it could do if it had a chance to spread in a large Indian or Chinese city.

    I think some of the countries "in the neighborhood" have been remarkably committed to containment, i.e. closing the borders that are contiguous to the most affected areas.
