As I stated back on August 9th on this thread, that WAVE 2 was not contained. IF wave 3 started(which started about 10 days ago) was large it means that all chances of containing this in West Africa has failed and that wave 3 would end with between 10 and 20 thousand infected and likely 10 thousand dead.
Well here we are.. They are saying officially around 2500 dead as of a few days ago.. BUT, almost everyone in the hot zone is saying that only 25% or so are being verified and counted in the official tally.. This means we are RIGHT NOW at likely 10,000 dead already, and likely 20,000 infected.. RIGHT NOW.... And Wave 3 is still raging.. This is where I said that they will no longer be able to push this under the rug.
Over the next 10 days(end of wave 3) you will see Ebola on every single news story, every news paper, every talk show.. Everyone will be talking about Ebola...
So we are already baked in for at least 100k dead and 200k infected going into Wave 4 and the chances of up to 4 to 5 more countries getting clusters in the region are all but guaranteed. Plus at least a few countries outside of Africa are all but guaranteed to have a cluster spark up.
I can feel this moving closer to me, but still feel very safe from it for now. I am using all spare time on the weekends and dedicating it to prepping. I spent all sunday putting away lots of tomatoes and pickles.. Upcoming weekend is going to be apple sauce and apple cider.. Last week was corn and some meat from the butcher.
This week will be more propane and gasoline..... Slow but steady.. I know others will think I am nuts, others will think it makes sense and do nothing anyways. I hope everyone is taking this serious and finally see that this isn't Bird Flu or some other scare that got blown out of proportions.
This disease has expanded consistantly at the worst case scenario rate since it popped up on our radar back in March of this year.
