There's an outbreak of Ebola in the Democratic Republic of Congo, 284 confirmed cases, 187 deaths. What's bad about this one is that there are large parts of the DRC that are not under government control, rebel fighters control some areas where the outbreak is happening. World Health Org can't coordinate a response like 4 years ago.

The DRC is the birth place of Ebola, first identified there in a 1976 outbreak. There has been 9 other outbreaks in the country since.

49 confirmed deaths but I haven’t found age breakdowns yet.

49 out of 312 million. That’s a lot!

Tronner. Get serious, many people are coughing and tens of people with pre existing comorbidities are dying.

LOL! Tron, how did you vote for himself getting it? Going on a cruise maybe? You of course party but my guess is you're probably the most physically fit poster here! Where's the the ideal weight presently, 189, 191, 193? I know you mentioned it at times!

And I think I heard the average age of the dead in Italy was 81! Supposedly that they have the oldest population in Europe!

Italy also have the best medical infrastructure of all Europe, even ahead of Germany's, and look how great they are making out.

They do! Didn't know that! Could be a primitive one where you're told to eat plenty of garlic! We love the stuff!
