  1. There will always be something. Ebola is just the rave of the moment.

    This whole Ebola saga has shown me that stigma is not an African thing, its a human problem. NBC Philly reported that Rwandan kids were essentially bullied (i use that term loosely) out of school because the school insisted that their temperature must be checked every 2 hours or so. The parents decided to keep the kids at home rather than subject them to such humiliation. Rwanda is not even in West Africa.

    • There has always been one epidemic or the other and with travel, migration etc…infectious diseases are never truly contained.
      It’s like the Spanish Influenza of 1918…it spread round the world, killing millions.
      I remember reading , I think it was The Great Ponds, by Elechi Amadi, and it was mentioned there.
      The International Community is only reacting now because it’s coming to their doorstep.

  2. And we all know that the fear of a thing kills more people than the thing itself. 20 people died of using salt as an immunisation against ebola in the first day in ph. Salt killed more people than ebola did.
