Ebola - it should be stopped
One of the reasons Ebola became a huge problem in Africa was because (1) governments reacted too slowly to the disease and thus people didn't receive correct information and continued to walk around in densely populated regions until they died while (2) sometimes people in quarantine escape or are 'liberated' (when Africans refuse quarantine they are called stupid) but also (3) because of insufficient help such as providing food and thus people have to search for food, while when enough help reaches the region the situation can improve. And as long as the outbreak remains in a 'relatively' small region, it can be maintained. But of course, anti-government organisations have so often blamed governments for all evils in society that many people no longer trust governments while those who wanted small governments now fear the disease and want a strong one. Still, if the Ebola epidemic may continue to become bigger as scientist Dr Peter Piot believes, and if America and Oceania handle this crisis well, then they may be the only continents where Ebola doesn't have a chance of spreading (on condition that people, returning from the Ebola-hit region, arrive in a few airports, are checked on arrival and accept quarantine if needed; then help can still be given while the government can show they control the situation) while other continents are probably too close to Africa to prevent unchecked immigrants arriving (unless maybe an island that refuses access to any person, and even then). Indeed, people can try to hold their hands as tight together as possible, but always some water will leak through. And one weaker moment and the hands become looser and the water flows away. (Indeed, also boats transport people.) That is why science is now very important to combat the disease, not nurses running around. And therefore the EU, Russia and even China, as wealthy countries, should invest money to try to stop this disease while we can be sure that the US gives. But probably, many countries are keeping their money to save possible future failings of banks while don't mind poor (black) people dying until it reaches us. Still, as in the past, the disease may die-off and only later resurface or another disease may arise; however, then we should have learned lessons to know how to prevent diseases from spreading worldwide. But hoping it will disappear on its own, that kills.
