    That picture clearly shows why this Ebola virus is continuing to kill people. That lady is another potential victim given the way she’s handling the sick guy so unprotected unlike the health workers looking on. More sensitisation is needed otherwise its capable of wiping out an entire family. Wake up West Africa.

      From what I’ve been reading, the health system in Liberia particularly, has broken down completely and families are left to care for their sick on their own. When you think about it, a lot of the carers are probably resigned to their fate as they don’t even have ready access to things like clean water and gloves, etc, which they need to care for the loved ones who are sick. So they’re very likely just doing the most they can in a very bad situation.

    So from these reports, Ebola has a 55% death rate so far. Let us assume this is close to accurate. I am sure a lot of unreported deaths have also occurred. In all, 55% is way better than the 90% death rate by experts. There is a fighting chance.
