There is one simple solution to halting the spread of any global pandemic / epidemic like the recent Ebola outbreak.
It's as politically inconvenient as it is simple.
The vast majority of the planet's population will not suffer even one single bit from implementing this solution.
The ones who will "suffer", as in experience a little inconveniences like resorting to tele-conferencing or miss that wedding, are the airy global elite who frequently fly all around the planet.
That's right. If we're truly facing a global health emergency as the WHO (World Health Organization) has announced,
Then the most obvious, simplest, no-brainer thing to do,
That SHOULD have been done by now,
Is to suspend all air travel. For a month. Maybe two at the most.
In fact, I'd say that if the world's governing structures don't do this one crucial thing if Ebola does go to the extent that it presently looks like it will, then we will have damning evidence that there really is an agenda afoot among the global elite to drastically reduce the world's population. Either that, or we'll have damning evidence that we really are being governed by morons.
But obviously, it's still ok to put the entire human race at risk so you don't have to miss that far-away friend's wedding. So let's keep worrying about ebola and treat the excessive commercial air travel happening all around as if it's an unstoppable natural phenomena that doesn't obey any government and can never be controlled.
