    A government official was able to get her family out of there under armed guard but everyone else who does not have connections will have to stay in West Point? What kind of leadership is that?

    West Point is on a point of land about 3/4 of a mile long. On the east there is a lagoon. If someone wanted to escape they could swim away at night. There are fishing boats on the side facing the sea (according to google earth). I wonder if the quanrantine will hold. I don't think so.

    I don't want to think about this but this is a plague. The medical system in some of these countries has collapsed. They don't have the resources to control it. Nurses and doctors have fled some clinics. Patients die, or try to stand and then they fall over.

    If you work in a clinic you need to wash your hands, but there may not be any running water. . . .
