Coming soon... to an IRB center near you

A video has emerged that an Ebola-infected patient has escaped a quarantine zone in Liberian hospital and went to a local crowded market in search of food. He was then pursued by medical staff and returned to hospital.

A local resident told the media that it is the fifth case in which a patient has escaped the quarantine zone.

On August 18, at least 17 suspected Ebola carriers fled the same hospital in Monrovia after a quarantine center was attacked by a rock-throwing crowd. They were then successfully returned to the facility.
This is not an "if" people... it's a "when".

How many N95 filter masks do you own?


LAST WORD: Magical medical moment
(Reuters) - A Nigerian doctor with Ebola carried on treating patients and met scores of friends, relatives and medics before his death, leaving about 60 of them at high risk of infection, the World Health Organisation (WHO) said on Wednesday.
Don't worry though, it's being handled...
Members of his church visited him in hospital in the oil hub Port Harcourt and performed a healing ceremony "said to involve the laying on of hands", said the U.N. agency.
Relax, folks... it's not like anybody ever travels to North America from Nigeria... right?
