Will more than half the world's people be dead on the planet from Ebola within 20 months? I do not know, but I wrote down the figures, should the rate of death rates continue unchecked, as is the case now.
People talk about exponential growth rates for Ebola, but until you see what a doubling rate does to the numbers in a cold hard tabular fashion, it is hard to believe.
If Ebola continues unchecked at the present rate, more than half the world's population will be dead within 20 months. Ebola is the Elephant in the room or now on the world stage.
The table below shows a doubling rate once a month. Many people say it is now closer to 3 weeks.
