80%+ of the population in Guinea where the current outbreak of Ebola began is Muslim. The longer the outbreak continues what are the odds of someone from West Africa who has been exposed showing up KSA for a quick pilgrimage?

It may not have oil, but Guinea is one of the largest producers of the bauxite ore used to make aluminum not to mention also something of a narco-state with it's diplomats once being implicated in a scheme where they acted as couriers carrying Colombian cocaine to European capitals in their diplomatic pouches. The people may be desperately poor but the political/military elites have the money to travel.

Getting reliable numbers on this outbreak is even harder that getting ones on MERS-CoV. For example last week on June 18 Sierra Leone's Ministry of Health & Sanitation saying that there had only been 22 Ebola deaths nationwide so far. And the health minister was on the record as saying anyone insisting otherwise is “demented”. But the same day Tulane University virologist Robert Garry (who had just flown back to the U.S. from West Africa) stated on NPR: “There are many villages in the eastern part of Sierra Leone that are basically devastated. We walked into one village and we found 25 corpses. One house with seven people, all in one family, were dead. It’s a very serious situation there,” adds Garry, “This is about as bad as an Ebola outbreak gets.”

So, Health Ministry says only 22 deaths nationwide whilst America’s expert says in one village alone, they met 25 dead bodies. So, who is lying? Who is demented?

I'll reply to my own post from six weeks ago to show that this Ebola has been out of control for a long while, and that the TRUE numbers of infected are far more then the reported numbers of infected. In Sierra Leone the reported numbers back in June were only those which proven by laboratory tests. Now just how many actual laboratories are there in a failed state like Sierra Leone? And what happens when a couple of dozen people die in a remote village 50 miles up a muddy road from anywhere remotely like civilization with no electricity let alone refrigeration and it's 80-90 F every day of the year? You dig a trench and get them in the ground as soon as you can if there is anyone left alive and/or around (if they haven't run away.

Funny how it's getting attention all of a sudden now when it's already been a total clusterf*ck for two months.

The reported numbers have begun to explode, which may be related to the exported case to Nigeria, as well as the two Americans being transported to Emory.
