    Wasn't Ebola eradicated at the cost of several billion dollars of Western Countries money?

    MSF is a joke of an organisation. Next thing you know they'll be sending cargo planes to import all these people into Europe. They did as much with ships, why not planes?

    They have 300 000 vaccines and have used about 10% of this stock possibly more since I've read this article. It takes months to make the vaccine and infections would have been an estimated 10 000 if they did not have the vaccine.

    I'm wondering if they are being less careful because they know they have a vaccine?

    If the provided photos are actually from the region and during this outbreak, the protective gear of the medical staff is much lighter and more workable for a hot climate than what was previously used.
