Jump to an area where population density is insane versus rural. I guess one upside, slightly less austere conditions so may be easier to distribute prophies and get a ton of clinical trial data. Downside sise more people will die

The good news is the area he came from hasn't had ebola for at least 45 days.

Is it really an outbreak at this point? Seems like it's an ongoing thing now.

Democratic Republic of Congo's current Ebola outbreak worst in country's history, officials say

This will help.

"Since their arrival in the region, the response teams have faced threats, physical assaults, repeated destruction of their equipment and kidnapping. Two of our colleagues in the Rapid Response Medical Unit even lost their lives in an attack," the health minister said in his statement Friday night.

People need to say fuck it and stop helping. Losing your life trying to help something that is beyond fixing is sad.

Open borders for all.

2nd deadliest Ebola outbreak in history spreads to major city, raising new challenges for containment

Since the outbreak was declared on Aug. 1, a total of 471 people have reported symptoms of hemorrhagic fever in the country's eastern provinces of North Kivu and Ituri, which share borders with Rwanda, Uganda and South Sudan. Among those cases, 423 have tested positive for Ebola virus disease, which causes an often-deadly type of hemorrhagic fever, according to the health ministry.

Why would doctors go there to help when the locals behave that way? Shit

Coworker knew I lived in Africa for awhile, asked about one of his nieces going on a mission trip he was concerned about. Asked some pretty specific questions.

1. What country
2. Is she attractive/hair color
3. What mission (city vs rural)

Could tell he was like what the fuck is wrong with this guy, but an 18yr old attractive blonde is going to get a lot of unwanted attention in most countries out there.

People gonna be people though, go learn your life lessons on your own. Hopefully it's not your last.

Also, enjoy pissing/shitting in a hole in the ground with no TP and constant diarreha (dont care to spellcheck, its almost saturday!)
