    It's almost unbelievable that a people could be so backward and misinformed as to attack and burn down the very treatment centers existing to help them regarding this and similar diseases. It's as if they literally are still living in the Dark Ages.

    Eating rodent bats (the current most likely cause) also seems like a very primitive practice. Does it really take creating a lyric song to inform those people concerning avoidance practices? It's difficult to understand that level of local society civility or lack thereof.

    As to the businessman that got his feelings hurt when people of other countries were (are) being cautious regarding those coming from the areas currently affected, he can have all the tears in his eyes he wants. But without a cure to this high-mortality disease, extreme caution is warranted by currently unaffected countries. I don't blame them at all while cures and/or immunizations are not yet available. High density populated areas could very quickly have catastrophic outbreaks.
