CDC Director to Banks: Ebola will be the next Aids...
« on: October 15, 2014, 12:17:06 AM »
Little bit of history about HIV and Africa.

Article

"With that said, the two diseases do share some similarities.  They both emerged in Africa via zoogenesis."

Can you not misquote the CDC director? He clearly stated "Ebola Will be the Next AIDS if You Don't Pay to Stop It"

jeez

There is a WORLD of a difference in the response, however insufficient with Ebola presently, than what was done with AIDS in the first five years (or longer). And if you want a month by month demonstration of that fact go no further than buying a copy of this book for the bargain price of $3

As long as our spiritual leaders don't proclaim Ebola to be God's wrath against the wicked queers, it'll never be the next AIDS.  Innocents are dying of this disease whereas AIDS was viewed as a godsend.  Wasn't a lot of motivation to stop the spread of a virus that was only killing the undesirables. :o

And not just that, but if you read the book I linked to you see the complicity of the local media in either not covering the story or burying it way back in section pages/columns, specifically The New York Times which had the most cases early on as well as The San Francisco Chronicle. And while we all remember one couldn't get Reagan or his officials to speak about AIDS, on the local level where really it was more important in the very early years Mayor Koch was horribly negligent considering he was widely considered to be gay himself.

It will be interesting to see how the banks respond to Africa and Ebola.

Africa is a large place -- we're really, at this point, only talking about 3 countries in Africa: Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea. Nigeria has had 20 cases, 8 deaths (all the result of 1 infected Liberian traveler arriving with acute infection at Lagos airport) but none in the past month so WHO will declare it contained in that country on 20 October if that stands. Same for Senegal on Friday -- they had one case, zero deaths only in August.

But look on a map. There are nine other countries in very close proximity that have had no cases as I assume they quickly enforced strict border controls.

If wealthy countries poured in workers and money this could be properly contained. I mean, do we really need to be reading that Cuba is showing us up with their Ebola response?

I'd like to know how many medical personnel and money each permanent member of the UN security council is contributing as well as the other top twenty countries by GDP output. There should be a draft resolution setting out a set minimum % that each promise to adhere to until this situation is resolved with monthly reports and deadbeat countries flogged in the international press.

What's crazy is the US will probably be condemned like Regan was with when concern is expressed.  Regan was 5yrs late with acknowledging AIDS.  Now that Ebola has hit US soil Facebook's CEO and wife offer a $25 million dollar donation to the CDC.  Bill Gates just missed the criticism boat by 1 day.  He urged Bank of America a day before the "Liberian" man, Eric Duncan, was diagnosed with Ebola, may he rest in peace.

Excuse me. Ebola is not the next AIDS, Ebola is

The ISIS of Biological Agents

Looks like news outlets are competing for the most stupid headline, sigh...
Seriously though, I do see a few things in common when it comes to the original AIDS crisis and its management and the outbreak of Ebola now. Kind of sad that some seem no not have learned a bit from history as of how to handle such situation.
