" The World Health Organization said that the countries hit by the worst ever outbreak of the deadly virus were beginning to suffer shortages of fuel, food and basic supplies after shipping companies and airlines suspended services to the region."
" Security forces in the Liberian capital fired live rounds and tear gas on Wednesday to disperse a stone-throwing crowd trying to break an Ebola quarantine imposed on their neighborhood, as the death toll from the epidemic in West Africa hit 1,427."
"Witnesses said the clashes in West Point started after security forces early on Wednesday blocked roads to the neighborhood with tables, chairs and barbed wire."
People must be told quite clearly that Ebola is a mega disaster that has the capacity to cause serious damage to the species Homo sapiens and that its containment therefore requires the highest priority. It cannot be treated in economic terms so the refrain of not enough resources is not acceptable. People must be told what they can do to avoid and contain the virus.
Research must be stepped up as well as epidemiological assays. Projections of of its possible spread must be made.
A DEDICATED SPECIES WIDE GLOBAL STRATEGIC FUNCTION TO CONTAIN AND COMBAT EBOLA MUST BE SET UP ONLINE WITH ITS OWN DATA BASE AND THOSE WHO ARE DEDICATED TO LEARNING HOW THE SPECIES CAN DEFEND ITSELF AND ATTACK ITS VIRAL ANTAGONIST MAY PERCEIVE AND ARTICULATE STRATEGIES THAT MAY BE EVALUATED AND ADOPTED IF FOUND SUITABLE. IT IS DIFFICULT TO UNDERSTAND WHY SUCH BASIC MECHANISMS ARE NOT BEING SET UP ( AND IF THEY HAVE BEEN SET UP WHY THEY ARE NOT MADE KNOWN TO THE SPECIES) AND THROWN OPEN FOR SPECIES WIDE PARTICIPATION. MICROSOFT CAN VERY WELL PROVIDE ITS SERVICES FREE TO KEEP THE APPLICATIONS WHICH IT ALREADY HAS RUNNING AND A SINGLE CO ORDINATOR WITH AN UNO MANDATE CAN CO ORDINATE THE STRATEGIC FUNCTION AND FEED IN ITS OUTPUT TO THE WHO. COME ON HOMO SAPIENS...250,000 YEARS IS ENOUGH TIME FOR YOU TO HAVE DEVELOPED YOUR CAPACITIES TO THEIR MAXIMUM POTENTIAL !
It is important that the species evolves the mechanisms required to respond to mega disasters.
