Ebola arrives: Wait 'till November



Today, I've recently read a concerned person's question about Ebola: is it really going to become a full pandemic?

My response to that person's question was the following:


Basically, if by the end of November we see more cases of Ebola in the United States, then yes, it is about to occur on a massive scale. 

It will happen either quickly or slowly.

I am hoping it will be slowly. I am hoping this will proceed in a matter of months, perhaps extend over years.  It would be disastrous if Ebola just broke out everywhere in the US within a month's time.

Consider this:
What happens next in the epidemic will be determined in part by mathematics. As of Friday, the WHO had reported 7,470 confirmed or likely cases, and 3,431 deaths in Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia. Currently, each infected person is infecting about two more. To slow the spread of the disease and eventually stop it, officials must somehow reverse the math. Only when each Ebola patient infects, on average, fewer than one person will the outbreak begin to fade.

At this point, while things are still normal and okay, I'd recommend you do the whole amateur prepper thing if you want to get ahead of the curve. Get some food put away, some water, a weapon or two and some ammunition.

Also, to protect yourself from the virus more, you might want to avoid shopping for groceries at Wal-Mart or lower class markets. You'll have to spend a bit more money and shop at the rich person markets. Why? Because this Ebola virus is going to hit the lower classes first.

Different cities are starting to assure their citizens that there is no need to panic and everything is under control. The CDC also is trying to keep everyone calm. However, keep in mind that the CDC will lie about their statistics when it's convenient.

Finally, if you are like me, and you are on the front lines as a health worker, I've located this thread at a little place I attend now and then. In this forum's thread, health workers are discussing what they see in their institutions and their expectations of the Ebola threat:

Good luck, everyone.
