You should have mentioned how the natives stormed Ebola help centers to break the infected out, that's probably a crucial step to "how to stop an epidemic".

Haitian earthquake survivers caught a type of cholera that turned out to endemic to the place some of the soldiers who worked to help them had come from, in other words one of them or more was an unwitting carrier. The government of Haiti was furious about this, and decided to sue.

The number was 115? COD Zombies right there. I remember people had many theories about how it was supposed to be "ebola," but it didn't really play out that way. Although, I do remember someone saying the numbers "38074" would flash in the zombies menu, which is leet for "ebola."

how to stop an epidemic? prevent a single outbreak sure, but conventional wisdom is that you dont, many ways you could minimize it but even insignificantly it only postpone the inevitable, but no way to actually fully stop it, think it as... when a epidemic hits its a both a mass dying and a human adaptation to the nature counter measure of self immunity take place, when the surviving people lives on they will have a immunity to the virus, and even recent research shows that vaccine for different disease can help the immune system to get certain amount of resistance to other diseases, theoretically it shouldn't happen but recent data show it does have certain effect, so we may fucked up our survival as a whole specie for keeping curtain diseases form ourselves, cuz if one thing that taught us is that you cant never fully contain all diseases, and even if you do it will just become a weapon for nation struggle and be unleashed when we are most vulnerable, and do what nature has in plan for us in the first place. The Aztec empire where wiped out not directly by Cortés military but by the plague brought there from Europe because the people was never exposed to such disease so their lack of exposure from their isolated ancestry assured their doom, fighting nature is a war you never win

Question:How to stop a epidemic Wait a minute. (Researchers play plague inc to see and conclude which procedures to contain the outbreak) (Meanwhile, an outbreak happened in west africa) (Researchers and medical staff discuss about how to stop that epidemic) (*Sending planes filled with research teams to speeed up the cure or treatment*) Wendover Productions:*Wait a minute thats illlegal.*

I remember this outbreak vividly. I live about 90 miles from Atlanta and it was a little scary when a doctor and nurse who had contracted the disease were flown into ATL to be treated at Emory Medical Center. They both were recipients of an experimental cure and as far as I can remember they both made a full recovery. I still remember watching the live broadcast as the isolation ambulance was shown pulling up to the hospital and the infected surprisingly was able to walk in unassisted while wearing full containment gear.

I've seen another documentary of this that focused more on some of the failures of some of the relief efforts, particularly about WHO and how they were reluctant to upgrade the situation to a major outbreak status (it was probably the 3 month gap that you mentioned in the video) or how there was mishandling at an Ebola hospital that led to a lot of dead clinical staff. The clips you have here are quite tame because the documentary showed piles of bodies and countless clips of people dead on the side of the roads or in their cars because of the lack of space at treatment centers. It's quite a different experience, but nice to see the different takes on the same situation.
Meester Writer (1 month ago)
reasons for the outbreak: 1. mass distrust of medical personell, conspiracy theories 2. burial practices of washing and kissing dead bodies not being abandoned even in the face of overwhelming evidence 3. hospitals closing and sending infected people back to their communities 4. lack of governmental cooperation within infected companies 5. infected people leaving/escaping isolation due to above reasons 6. infected persons intentionally or unintentionally infecting workers by not following instructions
