On the one hand, we cry about the fact that the planet is suffering from overpopulation, on the other hand, we cry about measures that could at least somewhat stop it...

Question: How to stop an epidemic? ANSWER: Give them water and waste treatment plants, building codes, development, etc. Anything else is just lip service talking out your butt!

11:45 A simple water-filled cooling vest isn't that expensive. Don't think the water has to be cooled for some effect, I think. I'm wearing one right now and it cost 100 or so euros. Didn't they have any of those in supply or are they a new product?

Just saying wrong flag for Nigeria in 9:48 it's the flag of Nicaragua. Great video though.

9:50 Nigeria has the wrong flag. I believe you confused it with the Nicaraguan one.

The Away ad at the end felt weird. In terms of music/audio, a more clear transition from the heavy content of the video to the commercial content of th Away ad would have been good.

Ebola is a CHEMICAL WEAPON, not a virus. It's a bllod agent.
Scott Koningisor (19 days ago)
@Steven Luo Ebola is not biological. It isn't a disease; it's a poison. . . Blood agents are chemicals that make you bleed internally: my definition is tight and accurate.
Steven Luo (19 days ago)
You sure have quite a loose interpretation of what a chemical weapon is, and what a blood agent is. Yes, I can come up with such an interpretation.

How could he mention planes in... *Brussels Airlines* ok then
that_G_EvanP (22 days ago)
It's really surprising me that people are thinking planes wouldn't be mentioned in a video about epidemics. What's even more surprising is that there's nothing in the video about the role planes can play in spreading an epidemic.

A lot of global NGOs don't work, (UN is the biggest failure), but the WHO is pretty damn good, and actually able to affect real change
Steven Luo (19 days ago)
You should think of the UN as an organization of the national governments, by the national governments, and for the national governments. Then you will understand why the UN is not living up to its own standards.
