They're good at what they do, that's one thing I can say about the media outlets.

A UN aid soldier


So my bad for only reading the headline
and their bad for the smokescreen/clickbait


BOLD PRINT main headline --->>>

TRENDING
Nigerian soldier tests positive for Ebola
December 7, 2014 — In October, Nigeria was certified free of the Ebola virus disease by the World Health Organisation, but on Wednesday, for the first time in almost three months, another Nigerian tested positive for the virus


--clickbait small print below the fold section-->>

The man – a soldier – is however not resident in Nigeria, but part of the United Nations’ peace mission in Liberia, the country which has been worst hit.



And the author is getting trashed in the comments for being misleading

It struck me as odd that such news would not make headlines in the Nigerian press.

I remember the last story I saw being a kind of "where are they" thing. Had the Asian lady form Texas and a few others all lined up and smiling and shit.

Had to get the illegal miners aka indigenous folks who mined for a living without corporate "licensing".

Hummingbird Industries doesnt seem to be worried about Ebola one bit

http://www.cdc.gov/vhf/ebola/outbreaks/2014-west-africa/case-counts.html

the main concern currently is sierra leone, and guinnea where cases are still rising-
and there are not enough isolation beds or resources
liberia - the situation is a bit more under control

who estimates that they can get the epidemic under control if they can get 70% of new cases in isolation
and safe burial of 70% of all deaths (the period immediately after death is the most contagious)
burial practices in w.africa exacerbate the spread of the disease

its far from over... only the news cycle is over in america
