Here’s more indication that things are somewhat better in West Africa. I saw the following in my morning Yahoo News. In US News and World Report it reads, “As the media frenzy over Ebola dies down and lives are saved, the focus for public officials and hospital leaders has switched to the cost of treatment. It’s astronomically high, but it’s also unpredictable — anywhere from $8,500 to $50,000 per day.”
I have to admit that my focus here was on the first clause of the sentence–as the media frenzy dies and lives are saved. That sounds like good news.

The news, though, is only somewhat good because Sierra Leone is still struggling. In fact in the past week alone they reported 537 new cases, more than ever reported before.
This article was by the Associated Press via Yahoo News. It said, “The Ebola outbreak, which is stabilizing in Liberia and Guinea, is spreading fastest in Sierra Leone. In a recent 21-day period, Guinea had 306 new Ebola cases. Liberia had 278. Sierra Leone had 1,455, according to the World Health Organization.”
The article goes on to explain why it is still spreading in Sierra Leone. You can see it here. http://news.yahoo.com/dangerous-practices-spread-ebola-sierra-leone-150708144.html;_ylt=A0LEVzcbkYBUAbgAcifBGOd_
