Here’s Where The Real Threat From Ebola Comes From
The real threat of an Ebola outbreak does not come from Africa. You can feel pretty confident about that.
However John F Kelly the commander of the U.S. Southern Command, Marine Corps announced a real threat about Ebola, and it has nothing to do with a person flying in from Africa.
The real threat is coming from a couple of places that the news media is not talking about.
The very real threat for an Ebola breakout is not coming from Africa, it’s coming from unchecked outbreaks in South, and Central American nations which would motivate many more immigrants to leave those countries and head north into the United States.
I have personally lived in Ecuador and traveled extensively throughout South America. While the people of these nations are wonderful, open-hearted individuals, their governments are striking examples of systemic incompetence.
To imagine that any government in Central or South America can contain Ebola — other than perhaps Costa Rica and Chile, both of which are substantially more forward-thinking — is to live in a delusional fairytale land of lollipops and magical fairies.
Many of these Central and South American countries are wholly unable to control their own borders and have near-zero resources to attempt to halt infectious disease outbreaks.
They’re short on both hospitals and medical personnel, and medical training for dealing with level-4 biohazards is virtually non-existent.
Public sanitation standards are far lower south of the border
Throughout many Central and South American countries, public sanitation is shockingly poor. There are relatively few safety standards in place at restaurants and food production factories, and worrisome practices such as open-air meat markets are commonplace.
Health and hygiene standards tend to be somewhat better in the cities, but they border on disastrous in many rural areas.
Even more concerning is the fact that burial practices throughout these regions closely mimic those of West Africa, where many Ebola infections have been acquired from infectious dead bodies being carried and buried.
The disposal of dead bodies, in fact, may be the primary transmission vector happening right now in Africa. T
hat these practices are so closely mirrored in many Central and South American countries is a serious concern indicating very high potential risk of an uncontrolled outbreak if Ebola is introduced to the region.
In short, what I’m saying here is that if Ebola spreads in Central and South America, it might never be eradicated there and could haunt the Americas for generations to come. To read more go to the original article here: Natural News.com
