That's okay, somehow I doubt the secret police will be taking the necessary precautions to prevent themselves from getting sick. All you need to do is wait for all the secret police to get sick and die off.

He would only be a racist if he said everybody in Sierra Leone is like that.

Of course she died in the ambulance, moments after they took her away from the traditional healer. That traditional healer was the only thing keeping her alive.
 
2014-07-27 12:52:43 PM  
Please tell me her asshat relatives contracted ebola and are now all dying too.

A Sierra Leone Ebola patient whose family sparked a nationwide hunt when they forcefully removed her from a treatment center and took her to a traditional healer, died in an ambulance on the way to hospital, a health official said.

Posted this in a previous thread..but thought it applicable here as well.

So, how did that work out for you? Did she died? And I'm guessing the dick waggling sorcerer who "treated" her has it now, as well as the derpy family. Lucky the "healer" wasn't in India, they would have killed him for being a sorcerer.

Doktor_Zhivago: Its not like doctors and science can do a whole lot for ebola disease either.


Actually they can if it is detected early enough, true there is no cure, but besides the aforementioned isolation doctors can treat the symptoms which if done early enough sometimes helps the body rally its defenses enough to allow the patient to pull through, its not much but its better than having chief bunga bunga dribbling chicken blood and goats milk over you and screaming for the demon to leave

Like I said in the last thread, there are lots of others out there who are infected and haven't gone to the hospital in the first place.

Her having run away probably won't be that significant an event in the overall epidemic. Sadly.

I have many rules for myself. One of them is NEVER GO TO AFRICA.


So far, I think it's a good rule. I don't care how beautiful the place is, it's not worth it. I have a hard enough time coping with the fundies here in the States... I think I'd lose my mind (or my head) having to deal with the tribal religions in Africa.

Hell, I get an eye twitch when dealing with people from Kansas.

Hey, even here in the land of higher education and superior health we still have chiropractic, liver cleanses, Reiki, crystal energy, ear candling, naturopathy, homeopathy, osteopathy, chelation therapy, "superfood"s, Mercola, and prayer. Oh and let's not forget truthers. I'd lay odds that we would not do a whole lot better at containing a serious disease outbreak.

FTA:  "Ebola can kill up to 90 percent of those who catch it, although the fatality rate of the current outbreak is around 60 percent."

That's probably some useful information, if they can figure out why.  Is the medical care getting better, or is the virus mutating into a less lethal form?

Likely true. Isolation / quarantine measures only work if the general population cooperates. It would be wise at this point to restrict air traffic in the region, except for emergency workers. There was a news report yesterday of an airline passenger from Sierra Leone spreading the disease to Nigeria.

/Nope, napalm is boring. A good solid FAE bomb is impressive.  Not only do you get a huge fireball, but you get to walk in after the fact and see how the whole village is flattened like a giant stepped on it.
