They aren't just breaching their own protocol, they are going out of their way to violate it in every way they possibly can. If it was any more blatant there would be painfully obvious to John Q. Public that it was intentional. Its almost as if our esteemed leaders desperately need a distraction from something.
Or, the Georgia Guidestones have been a playbook all along.
China sent a series of shipments to affected areas over the course of the outbreak, one worth roughly $160,000 in early May, and another $4.9 million worth of supplies on Aug. 7, according to state-run news outlets, which also report that at least 20,000 Chinese nationals are present in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea.
“Some portray China as a benevolent investor and friend of Africa. Others accuse China of being a ‘new colonial power,’ extracting resources for their own benefit with little return for Africa,” the report says.
On Aug. 10 China announced plans to send a team of nine specialists from its Center for Disease Control to train local medical staff and distribute supplies in Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia.
Later, eight Chinese workers who had treated Ebola patients were quarantined in Sierra Leone.
“Ebola has cast a shadow over new possible investment from China,” Xue Xiaoming, vice chairman of the Chinese Chamber of Industry and Commerce in Nigeria, said last month, adding that despite his faith in the Nigerian government to control an outbreak, investors were still getting nervous.
Trade volumes between Nigeria and China hit close to $14 billion last year, nearly double the rate just four years earlier, according to the Chinese ambassador to Nigeria, Deng Boqing, who spoke on the subject in January.
OSLO. KAZINFORM A Norwegian woman who works with Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF, or Doctors Without Borders) is infected with the Ebola virus, Norwegian media reports said on Monday.
The patient will be sent to an Oslo hospital for treatment in strict isolation and under special protection after she is brought home from Freetown, capital of Sierra Leone, the Norwegian-language newspaper Aftenposten reported on its website.
At a press conference on Monday evening, Bjoern Guldvog, a high-ranking Norwegian health official, said that chance is small that the infection will spread in Norway.

Ebola virus: Patients turned away at Sierra Leone treatment centers
A heartbreaking choice by heath workers, in this video segment it shows one family being sent away with only 5 pairs of gloves for their family to care for an obvious family member showing signs.
Burial teams overwhelmed and this is only the beginning as those numbers are rising exponentially.

Holy cow!!! This stinks. At this point it would be easier to believe a story about NASA finding a purple talking gorilla on the moon, than half this stuff that is coming out.
Sending 4,000 troops to fight Ebola??? This thing we are not supposed to be worried about, that is barely contagious, etc.? Troops can't fight viruses. Troops fight bad guys. Or at least that is how it is supposed to work.
