Ebola Outbreak Still Not Under Control

The ongoing Ebola outbreak is "resurging" in Guinea, where the virus has killed about 200 people since it appeared in February, and in neighboring Sierra Leone, said Doctors Without Borders on Wednesday.

Health workers appeared to be making progress against the outbreak, but Guinea and Sierra Leone are now reporting fresh cases, some in areas previously unaffected by the disease, said the doctors group, known by its French acronym, MSF.

MSF said it has seen more than 20 new cases of Ebola at its treatment centers in Guinea in the past week.

MSF said areas like the capital, Conakry, and the towns of Gueckedou and Macenta, near the border with Liberia, have seen a spike in the number of new patients.

But Ebola is also cropping up in previously unaffected towns, such as Telimele, north of the capital, and the coastal town of Boffa.
 This is a disease that normally burns out quickly because it is so lethal. That is apparently not the case with this most current outbreak.


  1. Hmm. I've got to wonder when Obama will classify the people in the Ebola affected area to be refugees, and start airlifting them to a city near you? What could possibly go wrong?

    1. He wouldn't do it. Too great a risk of killing off Democratic voters.
