Zombie Nations | Ebola on Steroids

Since its initial outbreak in 1976, subsequent outbreaks of the Ebola virus have worsened considerably. The current outbreak has killed almost 1000 people with thousands more infected. Originally rural, isolated and contained, the Ebola virus has become unwanted, unwelcome, and perhaps an unstoppable global traveler beyond the porous borders of West African countries with limited resources in a war-ravaged environment. Ironic how Africa was man’s womb and now could it be man’s tomb.

Because of its worldwide threat, short history, little studied with few experts, the Ebola virus has the potential to morph into something even deadlier, impossible to cure with a 100% fatality rate if it should cross-over with the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) or H5N1 (bird flu) virus. And those are just the ‘celebrity’ viruses. The indigenous diseases are difficult enough to combat in those developing countries so adding Ebola into the toxic mix creates a powerful lethal cocktail.
We very well may be overtaken by this new, dark viral Franken army because of the quickly diminishing efficacy of our antibiotics and other wonder drugs which are no longer wondrous. Episodes of viral “explosions” or “firestorms” turning villages and cities, particularly in war-torn areas with already compromised fragile sanitation systems, into endless rows of bed-ridden, gravely ill populations with a handful of overwhelmed medical staff, may become commonplace. We live in a global, borderless world where even the strictest and most draconian customs and border security can’t guarantee our safety any longer.
