But all we can do is go day by day and keep an eye on the spread, i.
But now we just need to deal with it
Then, someone comes from an infected area displaying symptoms and they send him home? So much for that training.

Nano silver - anyone have any info that doesn't come from some shady site? All I can find is personal opinion that it helps Ebola.....
Major pharmaceutical companies have shown little interest in developing effective treatments for diseases such as this. There’s no incentive for the commercial risks of research and companies naturally prefer to focus on diseases that can sustain large markets of wealthy regular users.
Let’s consider the most advanced drug: ZMapp, which is produced by Mapp Biopharmaceuticals and is the experimental treatment the fuss has been about. The incentive for developing ZMapp was clearly not its broad commercial potential. Instead, it is for developing capacity for biodefence.
Figure 4 shows the dynamics of the population age for 1% and 5% w/v inoculum sizes and the subsequent prediction of antibody r14D9 accumulation. According to the model, we assumed that proliferating cells produce the recombinant protein. Expression of r14D9 began on the fourth day, when cell proliferation ends, continued up to the tenth day (1% inoculum size) or eighth day (5% inoculum size), and then abruptly decayed.

There are plenty of anti-virals that are easily had and proven effective. Garlic, eat a raw clove every day. Turmeric and oil of oregano can be taken in capsules. Keep a cheap humidifier in your home and add tea tree oil to the water. I use about 20 drops per gallon of water. The expensive humidifiers have too many filters for the tea tree oil to muck up. Keep a small spray bottle of alcohol with tea tree oil around at all times, especially when you are out and about. About ten drops per 4oz of alcohol, use it to clean your hands and objects you may have to come in contact with. Spray down the inside of your car when you get home. There is a lot of prevention that can be gotten easily, common sense being the most important.

And yeah i'll get into the deformation of character of a sick man, he's a piece of trash, your in the middle of an outbreak of ebola and you travel if your not in health care? that's an ill informed, careless, waste of a human being,
NO ONE should be allowed in from these locations unless under strict medical supervision
And stop being a PC jerk... QUARANTINES are not about your bs PC wanna be humanitarian make myself feel good about myself puke... it's called Quarantine for a reason it has a definition it has nothing to do with race ideology or tolerance to sex and drug practices, it's about not killing your neighbors by being a imbecile and Liberia absolutely, absolutely beyond any reasonable doubt is IS a Cesspool of transmissible behaviors across the vast bulk of the population.
