    Seems to me that the ebola virus has become seriously difficult to contain. If it spreads to other continents, we could see a significant pandemic.

    This will break containment… we will be seeing it here…

    These people have never shown themselves to be competent in regards to things like this. And our idiot government will no doubt welcome thousands of potential Ebola-carriers into our country…

    If the agricultural sector is Sierra Leone is suffering to the extent noted in this article, then the number of deaths must be far higher than has been officially reported.

    http://www.standard.net/World/2014/07/25/Crops-rot-as-Ebola-orphans-flee-Sierra-Leone-farms.htmlreported. Not good.

    Ebola is defeating the best precautionary measures available.

    “While caring for patients, clinical staff is heavily robed with gown and apron; three pairs of gloves; a hood; and goggles.”

    I am trying to follow news about this too, seems that it slowly going out of the control. If this gonna be real thing (real SHTF potential) I do not think it can be contained anyway.

    We ll see.

    Selco, I agree. This has very real SHTF potential. The long incubation time greatly enhances its ability to spread. The medical world is not prepared for a pandemic of this nature.

    A little more on the developments;

    http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/world/liberia-closes-border-crossings-issues-quarantines-to-halt-ebolas-spread/article19800997/

    “No doubt, the Ebola virus is a national health problem,” Sirleaf said. “And as we have also begun to see, it attacks our way of life, with serious economic and social consequences.”

    Liberia will keep open Roberts International Airport outside Monrovia and James Spriggs Payne Airport, which is in the city.

    Sirleaf said “preventive and testing centres will be established” at the airports and open border crossings, and that “stringent preventive measures to be announced will be scrupulously adhered to.”

    Other measures include restricting demonstrations and marches and requiring restaurants and other public venues to screen a five-minute film on Ebola.

    Sirleaf also empowered the security forces to commandeer vehicles to aide in the public health response and ordered them to enforce the new regulations.

    It is obvious that this is a serious problem. Any type of outbreak into Western Europe or the US and we are in for a real ride.

    I know that it is possible to survive if caught early enough, but how long before health care systems are overwhelmed. A very dangerous situation.

    I notice that Obama’s propaganda machine (mainstream media) is even documenting where it has spread too. This could be a global reset.

    The only option is quarantining the entire continent.

    They will not be coming home unless the CDC has a plane and airport setup to handle contagious diseases.

    The mere prospect of Ebola in Africa’s most populous nation has Nigerians on edge.

    In Nigeria’s capital, Abuja, Alex Akinwale, a 35-year-old entrepreneur, said he is particularly concerned about taking the bus, which is the only affordable way to travel.

    “It’s actually making me very nervous. If I had my own car, I would be safer,” he said. “The doctors are on strike, and that means they are not prepared for it. For now I’m trying to be very careful.”

    Edit: If this is true that doctors are on strike, it would lead me to believe general practitioners have decided not to expose them selves to the virus. These doctors would not have any of the required containment or protective equipment. Treating infected patients would be a death sentence. They are going to have a lot of unidentified infected people before long.
