It is because of the rather lax nature in western medicine that the same diseases that have killed off many a population more than a decade ago, have resurfaced and this time in the country where they live. It's too bad that western medicine does not seize the opportunity to develop medications for remedy and or cure during the times when diseases exist no matter how small or insignificant they may be to ones own personal threat or way of thinking in that they cannot be affected because of who they are or their affluent status or by being a US citizen. Many of times this is how to combat a virus because it has yet to be considered an epidemic in that it has not become a world or national threat. Once a virus spreads it eventually exists throughout the entire world and has the healthcare system in a panic as to how to protect themselves from it and to also be able to provide help to those who are infected.
I don't think it's being too harsh on a medical researchers or doctors who make claims to knowing their stuff, to pursue effective medication control over viruses and diseases that at the time may have only exterminated a certain section of the population. But, I do feel it reasonable to indicate that when you have a virus that causes death in a very small amount of time and having demonstrated the potential of killing in the thousands, although because of your demographic background you don't feel it important enough to notice; there needs to be efforts made to control any and such a virus that is able to to this to any human being. If a virus with this capability is not investigated as a potential health threat, then once it actually becomes a threat the medical world is without prevention to eradicate it or reduce the severity of the virus by prolonging human life.
In any event it now becomes of the healthcare workers own initiative to prevent one's self from possible infection or contamination, due to viruses that there is no known cure for. I will advise consulting with a herbalist before taking certain supplements. But, if you are worried or concerned about, any illness involving hemorrhagic fever, the supplement bitter kola or garcinia extract is supposedly able to remedy ailments involving hemorrhagic fever. Healthcare work can make one bitter and if this type of work is not exactly your Saturday night fever, then have a kola (garcinia extract) and a smile- because this could be the real thing!
