I am sure more will start popping up. They are covering the numbers up on how many are infected and how far it has spread. Once this virus kills 50K people it will be unstoppable in the media. It is still expanding and has a death rate of at minimum 50% at this point. Won't be long now!

Whole of Africa? What about Europe?

Freetown is even closer to London than Johannesburg. The only way South Africans (medical assistance) can get to Freetown is via Brussels or Casablanca. All flights have been suspended from South Africa.

Unless people cross many borders for almost 6000km, it will reach us. But, it is nature, and, nature has its way of doing what it must.

What extra preventative measures can be taken?

We need to do more than just watch and wait.

This ain't nature. This is a biological weapon. Look at the history of AIDS. The real history, not the Band Played On Media hyperbole. There is a reason why they are testing this out in African Nations. A reason why it is being experimented on with African people, kind of like AIDS, which has a pesky thing of attaching to the Delta gene only commonly associated with people of color.

This is to speed of plans to wrestle the African resources from the "enemy" ala China and kill off the people who would gladly do business with them. Case in point, Re-Colonization without the mess of people screaming its their land.

WHO just released an Epidemic & Pandemic Alert and Response (EPR)
for E bola virus disease – Senegal:

On 30 August 2014, Senegal’s Ministry of Public Health and Social Affairs provided WHO with details about a case of Ebola virus disease (EVD) announced in that country on 29 August.

...The case is a 21-year-old male native of Guinea, who arrived in Dakar, by road, on 20 August and stayed with relatives at a home in the outskirts of the city.

On 23 August, he sought medical care for symptoms that included fever, diarrhoea, and vomiting. He received treatment for malaria, but did not improve and left the facility.

After leaving the facility, he continued to reside with his relatives. Though the investigation is in its early stages, he is not presently known to have travelled elsewhere.

On 26 August, he was referred to a specialized facility for infectious diseases, still showing the same symptoms, and was hospitalized.

On 27 August, authorities in Conakry, Guinea, issued an alert, informing medical services in Guinea and neighbouring countries, that a person, who was a close contact of a confirmed EVD patient, had escaped the surveillance system.

That alert prompted testing at the Dakar laboratory, launched an investigation, and triggered urgent contact tracing.

...WHO is treating this first case in Senegal as a top priority emergency.

Hate to say it, but it sounds like there are likely to be some people who were exposed in his family and at 2 or more medical facilities at the least.
