Modern Science meets the Middle Ages


Mob destroys Ebola treatment center in Monrovia

‘The president says you have Ebola, but you don’t have Ebola, you have malaria. Get up and go out!’

A mob descended on the center at around 5:30 p.m., chanting, “No Ebola in West Point! No Ebola in West Point!” They stormed the front gate and pushed into the holding center. They stole the few gloves someone had donated this morning, and the chlorine sprayers used to disinfect the bodies of those who die here, all the while hollering that Ebola is a hoax.  ~Buzzfeed

Then the mob left with all of the patients.

“Everybody left with their own thing,” she said. “What are they carrying to their homes? They are carrying their deaths.”

What good is modern science when your patients are living in the dark ages?
