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]
✓ 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?
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”.

I could see China also quietly walking Ebola patients into an incinerator and turning it on full blast.

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