Well, that's to be expected since their protocol was full of glaring errors.

I appreciate the contribution, but I can't really get into it unless "Ebola is real" is one of the first three songs. Did you catch the series of NPR stories about enterprising musicians bringing the tale of Ebola to the streets of West Africa? Certainly they have good reason to doubt their governments and the west, but really? Put it to music and the message sinks in? This sort of thing does not make me feel confident in our collective efforts.

I heard that, yeah. Made me yearn for a Weird Al ebola tribute album.

And.... number 3. But remember team "protocols are in place". For example:

"The agency is working to educate U.S. health care workers on how to isolate patients and protect themselves from infection; it developed a Web-based document that identifies rapidly emerging CDC guidelines for Ebola applicable to public health preparedness national standards for state and local planning." -USA Today

ie:

"I know how we can stop Ebola... a PDF file!"



meanwhile from usnews and worldreport:

If what the nurses from the hospital are saying are true, the first patient should have been moved out of there immediately. Bizarre lapses.

it's the bungling of the government allowing this to happen here. this would never happen in a place without stultifying governmental intervention, like liberia.

Why, precisely, must we attack Ebola in Africa? Research on a cure doesn't require cuddling victims in their huts. Scientists who discovered the AIDS cocktail didn't spend their nights at Studio 54 in order to "fight the disease at its source."

Nearly 9,000 known cases in Africa, versus like 2 1/2 here. So now every article and every story is about ebola in America.
