Since at least August the CDC has been spouting the line "We know how to control Ebola" yet months later we were caught with our CDC protocols around our ankles. So far that mistake appears not to have snowballed in the US.
Meanwhile, no signs of progress controlling Ebola in Africa, despite repeated claims by many that "we know how to control Ebola".
Ebola just keeps on keeping on, doubling and re-doubling and re-doubling. Getting harder and harder to control, if that's even possible at this point.
Meanwhile we get stories like the "extraordinary success", the "spectacular success" in Nigeria... about how Ebola was stopped after one air traveler imported Ebola and only eight people died and twenty secondary infections. Yay team! A few more successes like that and we'll really have Ebola on the run.
But seriously if every existing case of Ebola ONLY led to 8 more deaths and 20 more infections before the outbreak was controlled that would be (at this point) a spectacular success. That's not going to happen... those numbers aren't small. The real numbers are going to be bigger, and that's only if the global community gets their act together and stops merely pissing on the fire.
