That the Ebola virus is a terrible threat to mankind is undoubtable, but
i wonder if anybody has thought about the consequences of an epidemic
disaster in areas with high consentration of population - for example
central Europe or the eastern coast of the USA.
Ebola kills 88 percent of the victims, and thus would such a populated
area be reduced to almost nothing. The survivors would face huge
problems just to keep up a normal functioning life - there will be no
one left to take care of the functions an services that we normally use.
Imagine, that there will be no supermarkets, butchers, bakers, no one to
take care of power supply etc. Almost nobody in the civilized part of
the world would be able to provide food for himself and his family. The
survivors would starve to death.
Indeed, Ebola is the mightiest threat mankind has faced yet.
