  1. No. Ebola is not incurable. Many people have survived the disease. It’s fatality rate has ranged from 25% to 90% and averages around 50%.

    There are many reasons why medical science doesn’t yet have a solution for this disease. Here are some in no particular order:

    1) Not enough money.
    The current Ebola panic in the U.S. has used up the entire annual budget the Center for Disease Control has for Ebola.

    2) Not enough interest.
    Ebola has been a health problem for the past 4 decades, mainly in remote West African villages that are some of the poorest places on the planet. Dedicated Western scientists have dedicated they careers and risked their lives to studying this disease, usually with embarrassingly absent backing from their wealthy countries.

    As usual, in the United States Supreme Court of Public Opinion commonsensical questions are asked in the midst of the media frenzy and public outrage that inevitably results from the politically-fueled sensationalism that the American political circus creates. And of course, the answers are usually grossly inadequate.
