Costly Ebola misstep:

The recent outbreak of Ebola virus has pretty much everything in common with the 1976 outbreak – except we were smarter about it back then. Both outbreaks were caused by Zaire ebolavirus 2 that began in rural forest communities. Severely ill victims made their way to provincial hospitals with systemic illness. Unsuspecting personnel had contact with Ebola patients’ blood and body fluids and the outbreaks amplified. The 1976 outbreak came to a head when 13 hospital staffers became sick, of which 11 died, and the hospital was closed. Out of genuine mistrust of Western medicine, infected people fled back to their home villages and sought treatment from traditional healers. The government then quickly quarantined 275,000 people in the region and allowed no commercial planes or boats in or out. Citizens were told not to leave their villages or allow strangers to enter. Ebola victims were isolated in huts outside their villages. Bottom line, the 1976 outbreak was contained. 36 years later we lost our freaking minds… If it comes to your community what will you do?

How long will we continue this mistake?
