Ebola-Gripped Liberia: 'There's Just Mass Hysteria'

Prophecy Sign:  Disease & Plagues

Over 1,400 dead and many more to come with no signs of abatement any time soon.  Ebola continues to sweep across West Africa.  The only thing keeping Ebola under wraps and not becoming a global pandemic, (like some Hollywood movie), is the fact the the disease is spread by fluid transfer or touching the body. However take away all infrastructure, (medical),  as would happen in war, and this disease could easily become something akin to what bible prophecy warns of for the future.

I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth. Revelation 6:8 NIV

Ebola-Gripped Liberia: 'There's Just Mass Hysteria'

Ebola has killed more than 1,400 people across West Africa with no end in site to the epidemic and no proven cure. Operation Blessing is bringing aid to help fight the outbreak. They've shipped supplies, including disposable protective clothing, rubber gloves, face masks, needles, and medicine to help serve the Ebola clinics in two locations in remote parts of Liberia. "It's a nation in crisis," David Darg, vice president of Operation Blessing, said. "The people of Liberia are afraid. There's just mass hysteria, mass fear."

'Underestimated' Ebola outbreak spreads
Ebola continues to spread in West Africa as Sierra Leone voted to pass a new amendment imposing jail time for anyone caught hiding an Ebola patient. With 142 new cases recorded, the total number is now 2,615 with 1,427 deaths, the World Health Organization said Friday. The group added that the magnitude of the Ebola outbreak has been "underestimated." "Many families hide infected loved ones in their homes," the organization wrote in an assessment. "Others deny that a patient has Ebola and believe that care in an isolation ward — viewed as an incubator of the disease — will lead to infection and certain death. Most fear the stigma and social rejection that come to patients and families when a diagnosis of Ebola is confirmed." Most of the new cases are in Liberia. So far, that country has record 1,082 cases and 624 deaths. New treatment centers are overwhelmed by patients that were not previously identified.
