Yes, the Ebola epidemic is out of control - and has been since March. Everyone but the WHO and government authorities has seen it since then.
BUT. It's West Africa
that needs help. Forget the so-called "civilized" world.
West Africa needed -and still needs:
* Actual hospitals to isolate patients. There are few hospitals there, maybe about 5 spread out between Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia. Isolation
works, but quarantine is little more than a political response.
* Doctors and medical staff - there are about 0.04 doctors per 100,000 people there - so far the CDC has sent n 12 advisors
, and the WHO only
120 assorted personnel. Doctors Without Borders and other charities have been carrying the load for the past 6 months - and begging for help, and
saying all along it was out of control and bigger than they could handle.
* Water and food for patients (if not saline solution for rehydration).
