I live in South Africa
We have our first ebola case today, a man who is being tested for Ebola due to high fever.
I always knew the zombie apocalypse was coming. Something I need to add to this:
Black people don't believe in Ebola, they don't believe that eating bats and monkeys have catastrophic side effects. That's why this has gotten so rife in the past 5 months, they wont believe in western medicine, they believe in their cultural methods which in my personal opinion is the reason why we are sitting where we are.
how do you convince these people that something like this is not good for business?

I don't understand, do they believe that it doesn't exist (a hoax) or do they think that it was manufactured/spread from the centre?
No matter, it is done now and things are much harder now for everyone who is trying to halt this virus.
Reminds me of the cats/plague story in the middle ages.
During the middle ages cats were viewed by the religious population to be companions of witches and evil creatures and were often zealously killed on sight.
This allowed the rat population to grow unchecked spreading the Black Death like wildfire.
Wiping out a quarter of the human inhabitants of Europe.
Mankind can be his own worst enemy.
I've read another story where a person suspected with Ebola escaped and it turned out that he had Malria instead. He said if he stayed at the hospital, he may have been infected with Ebola and died.
So it seems that it is true - that people are coming down with Malatia also. It would be a shame for those with malaria to contract the disease.
