a reply to: ikonoklastI'm considering starting a Change.org Petition to remove Dr Frieden. Your thoughts? My post on it here:
“Ebola got a head start on us,” he said. “It is far ahead of us, it is running faster than us, and it is winning the race. If Ebola wins, we the peoples of the United Nations lose so very much…,” he said. “We either stop Ebola now or we face an entirely unprecedented situation for which we do not have a plan,” Mr. Banbury told the Council via video link from the operation’s headquarters in Ghana.

Whoa indeed. You apparently work in the health field - What do you think a realistic time-frame is "to synthesize, test, and distribute an effective vaccine?"

It would appear, according to your charts, that the spread of Ebola tends to flatten our after the initial exposure and then it continues its upward trend. This can be seen in Sierra Leone infections earlier this year where it appears to have stopped expanding its hold for a few months and then begins its upward climb as it spreads to more of the population.
I took note of this because it appears, according to chart 13b, that the same thing is happening in Nigeria right now. It has flat-lined for a couple of months. It would appear that we will soon see an upward movement of infections in Nigeria if this is the case.
Or it could be related to the infection-reporting methods of the countries involved.

Again, kudos for keeping up with this. Anyone watching these charts ... or better yet, going back and looking at their development ... will see the trends so obvious to my own eyes.
