Ebola Outbreak in Uganda: CDC Rushes to Contain Virus

See on Scoop.itVirology News

Dr. Richard Besser travels with American doctors as they race to stop a global threat.

 

Really? Because local doctors were doing nothing about it? Because it was really a global threat? Come on! The Kikwit outbreak in the 1990s was MUCH worse, occurred in a much more chaotic public health setting – and less than 0.1% of the city of 500 000 was affected, and it didn’t spread.
Be more afraid of…oh, I don’t know, maybe West Nile virus, Dengue virus, Yellow fever virus?? WAAY more cases, and far closer to the US of A!
