    Well, that's a little worse than what they said before.
    For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Ephesians 6:12

    Default Optimism

    The sooner that we can get to a 70% hospitalization rate, the cheaper the total cost will be --

    @Casillic The data suggests 70% hospitalization would reduce the R0 to below 1.0 meaning the outbreak will eventually disappear. By mid-Jan.

    World Health Organization: Experimental Ebola Vaccine Doses Will Be Ready By 2015


    Geneva (AFP) - Thousands of experimental Ebola vaccine doses from British GSK and US NewLink should be ready for use by early 2015 in countries affected by the epidemic, the World Health Organization said Friday.

    "If everything goes well, we may be able to begin using some of these vaccines in some of the affected countries at the very beginning of next year," said WHO assistant director general Marie-Paule Kieny.

    There is no licensed treatment or vaccine against the virus that has killed nearly 3,000 people in West Africa, and the UN health agency has endorsed rushing through experimental treatments and vaccines.

    WHO is especially focusing on two experimental vaccines, one made by British company GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), and the other by US group NewLink Genetics, and is working with both companies to accelerate clinical trials, Kieny said.

    Some clinical trials have begun in the United States, and others are set to begin in Mali next week, she said.

    The agency has already said that, if found to be safe, some doses should be available for use to healthcare workers by November and wider use could be possible early next year.

    Anyone else think a 70 percent hospitalization rate in Africa is going to be next to impossible?

    There is the rubber-band effect I expected and mentioned earlier this week. I would have rather been wrong...

    For reference, here is Thursday's chart:

    "See, in the last few years...we've stumbled... And when you stumble a lot, you...you start looking at your feet. We have to make people...lift their eyes back to the horizon and see the line of ancestors behind us saying, 'Make my life have meaning.' And to our inheritors before us saying, 'Create the world we will live in.' I mean, we're not just holding jobs and having dinner. We are in the process of building the future."
