No apologize needed, all good. Speaking of technicians, surprise I am an electrical engineer/software engineer. This does not mean I ingested a
vocabulary for english on everything technical. You know, this would be impossible in several ways.
I seems you are really not aware that ATS, while hosted in USA, has plenty of members from other countries. I don´t want to bitch about language
issues anymore now you know. Back to topic, I´m also aware of the fact that more people die from influenza every year than from lets say the
hyper-hyped bird-/swineflu strains. That´s pretty wide knowledge here also.
Apollogizing me seems impossible for modern science at least. The estimated figure I read was 12 million infections, maybe this is uneducated
overrating of the situation but I read it here on a thread where it was quoted from a study.
Let´s see if I can find it.
EDIT: Found it. Soficrow, it´s your post, I knew I thought it was from you but was not sure:
1. Based on 3,069 reported cases (at August 26, 2014), the case total will reach 196,416 within about 6 months, and up to 12,570,624 cases after a
2. The WHO estimates unreported cases bring the total to 12,000 cases, which means cases would rise to 384,000 cases with in 6 months and 24,576,000
cases after a year.
3. Most likely the real case rate is much higher. There are no accessible hospitals or clinics for most West Africans - no one to test and diagnose,
and no one to report new cases. Realistically, the actual case total is probably closer to 20,000 already. If that's true, then by 6 months the case
total will be 640,000 and by one year - 40,960,000 cases.
If the transmission rate does not speed up.
So, I think my perspective is just right and happens to be on the lowest scale they could come up with. Time to adjust yours Nechash, unless the above
is totally overrated
