Hell, lets throw China into the fray. I've been wondering about them anyway.

Please note the first sentence here. Are they being more cautious than other countries?


Beijing has quietly imposed strict border and health controls to prevent the spread of the deadly Ebola virus to China.

Border control and health authorities put a response plan in place in July and the measures were working well, even though the public was not aware of them.

Health authorities in Ningbo said yesterday a Nigerian who arrived in the city via Taiwan did not have the disease. The man was put under observation after he was found to have a fever but his temperature later returned to normal. [Source]


And China just sent 10,000 doses of its new Ebola-blocking drug to Africa.

Ebola blocking.

✓ On a side note, there are an estimated 10,000 Chinese nationals living and working in Sierra Leone, Liberia, and Guinea, the Ebola-infected African countries. According to reports I've read, none of those Chinese seem to have have caught the disease.

✓ On another side note, the vaccine was created by the China’s Academy of Military Medical Science, which has been working on such antidotes since the US started using biological warfare in North Korea beginning in 1951. Who knew? Isn't that a war crime?

I'd like my Chinese Ebola Vaccine please.

Thanks for posting this, I was wondering what China was up to in regards to this.

Welcome.

Interesting eh?

"...quietly imposed...."
"...public not aware of them..."

All in July. That's pretty smart in my book.

Notice what China did?
Closed borders.
Insensitive bunch huh?

I really am disgusted that China has an ebola blocking drug but the US has politically correct policies that require we let ebola patients enter the country. Can't let anyone think we're insensitive.

At least we can look forward to a kinder, gentler, pandemic.

Yep. Insensitive, Ri-ight. Pisses me off too.

The U.S. should never have brought ANY cases here and should have limited flights and watched all borders back in July like China did. That's common SENSE, not 20-20 hindsight.

Just because the people who chose to go there to help got sick and "wanted to come home." The DoS messed that one up big time too. Full stop.

Focus personnel and resources on where it already is and protect the rest of the world.

I could see China also quietly walking Ebola patients into an incinerator and turning it on full blast. Either that or using one of those giant holes up there near Russia/China lands, I think they are for mining? Oops, goes the ebola victim to the bottom...

I can't claim that wasn't my first thought too, as my nephew had some firsthand experience with them wiping out whole villages they had experimented on. Quietly all the way...supress communications and handle it. That seems to be the Chinese motto.

Sihuan Pharmaceutical, the private Chinese company that last week purchased the rights to commercialise the drug from a branch of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA), said it began manufacturing the drug after it was approved in August as a “special drug for military needs”.



See, "Private" industry actually works sometimes !!

I actually heard about this a month ago from a friend of mine from China.

But nothing was being reported, so I figured it would have been laughed off.

Hmmm.

I guess Ebola is true after all.

Yes private industry does work, for a former military science unit.

I believe that translates into: "if we stay out of it and don't give the west an excuse to use biological warfare on Asia like they would, maybe say, West Africa" ?

8 Chinese health workers were quarantined on the 12th of august in Sierra Leone. I don't know what happened to them but I remember it scrolled across BBC news 24 for about 30 minutes as breaking news and then disappeared and I couldn't find anything on BBC website that day when looking for info.

I guess pure unfettered capitalism has failed the test of history in every way now.

Not going to argue that.

Still can't believe the US, or anyone else in the western world, hasn't worked up a med for this stuff.

Of course, we've got a lot of CDC approved bike paths and the guy who signed off on Solyndra is now the Ebola Czar/Tzar or whatever so the administration has a hatchet man to protect them politically.

Ebola doesn't give the skinny crack of a vectors ass about ideology.
Commies and capitalists all....

Wait, the commies have a med for that.

Libs and conservatives all crash and bleed out the same.

Off topic, but have to ask, what do you propose as the alternative? China's communist model?

The cure is there - developed in the US and Canada. The trick is in mass producing it. Up to now, it's been produced using tobacco leaves.

Protect the world?

That would literally mean destroy the us ...

You're right. I was taking the happy path for a moment.

Humanism if you require a specific ideological label. Focusing on helping people rather than playing power games and preserving classism. Communism didn't work either. No ism works. China is not communist anymore by the way.
