The Liberian neighborhood where the ebola clinic was raided is now sealed off with barbed wire and armed guards. Anyone who has symptoms in there is pretty well fucked. And since it's a really classy neighborhood where the residents shit in the streets and have to carry potable water in by hand, it sounded like even the non-infected were fucked. Emergency food and water aid has just started to get in though. Still, it's pretty Escape From New York there, and I've no doubt that neighborhood is going to see a rather drastic decline in living inhabitants. And who knows how many infected managed to slip out before the area was sealed.
Incidentally, the current tally of known
infected from this outbreak now overshadow all previous outbreaks combined
. Last I heard, the death toll was lagging behind, but with just 240 more deaths this outbreak will outnumber all previous outbreaks on that statistic as well.>>451531
And the pharma producer has said they're all out of the serum. Not sure how long before they'll have more but it sounds like even if it does get approved for widespread use, production will be slow and in small quantities.
