The Ebola outbreak in West Africa could spread to hundreds of thousands more people by the end of January, according to an estimate under development by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that puts one worst-case scenario at 550,000 or more infections.
A nationwide three-day curfew in Sierra Leone entered its second day today as part of a government effort to stop the virus from spreading. During the lockdown, almost 30,000 volunteers go door to door to distribute soap and explain Ebola prevention measures.
Does anyone remember when the Department of Homeland Security suggested that Americans have duct tape in a disaster preparedness kit? That was in February 2003. Duct tape and plastic would presumably seal one’s home against nuclear, chemical, and biological contaminants.
Duct tape is all I could think of when I read that soap is being distributed door to door to offset Ebola.
I am sorry I can’t add more at this time and I know I should. :imsorry:
