Your right. Fun time is over. What is most disturbing about this is we may not be getting the real numbers yet and the outbreak may be far worse than they are reporting.

I don't like zeroing in on these things - like intuition when there is about to be real trouble. - but this one feels bad. One can assume that there is always a form of Ebola circulating and perhaps people have developed some immunity. New outbreaks would suggest it has mutated.

Over the next week we will know in terms of the fatality rate which is now at 3 out of 18. Of course, you can't base anything on so few cases.
