Ebola – Nigeria will be officially declared Ebola-free in less than a week after containing the disease that has killed more than 4,000 people. Eight of the 20 people infected in the country died and there have been no new cases confirmed since 8 September.It means it is less than a week short of the 42-day period needed by the World Health Organisation (WHO) to confirm Nigeria has quashed its Ebola outbreak. The conditions seemed ripe for it to spread through the densely-populated city of 21 million people and beyond, through the workers travelling in and out of Lagos every day and international travellers flying from its airport around the world.But Nigeria was ready – Ebola had already killed more than 400 people and was spreading through Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia. Dr Tom Frieden, director of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, praised Nigeria’s response. Although Nigeria isn’t completely out of the woods, their extensive response to a single case of Ebola shows that control is possible with rapid, focused interventions,” he said
Wait a minute? Nigeria just mollywhopped Ebola? Are you kidding me! And this is the disease everybody is freaking out about? Nigeria just kicked it’s ass? BHAAHAHA. Ebola is such a fraud disease I can’t even stand it. You got a better chance of getting eaten by a Great White on the way to the grocery store than you do of dying from Ebola. Yet somehow everybody is acting like Ebola is the 85 Bears. Obama giving speeches. People getting quarantined for sneezing.. Hey Newsflash Nigeria just smoked Ebola’s ass. Do they even have electricity there? If they can beat Ebola and we can’t I’m fucking moving to Africa end of story. Ebola is a paper tiger like you read about.
