Dr Kent Brantly is the only person doing anything of value for patients with Ebola in the USA.
The CDC is useless.
The medical research universities of the USA are useless.
The public medical drug companies are useless. (They soon will not have enough of a population pool to chase up their stock prices.) Now that is a bad business model.
Both they and the CDC have had almost 40 years to come up with a live vaccine like Dr. Kent Brantly is giving first hand to the infected patients of the USA.
It is not up to Brantly to have his platelets drawn every few days. I have done that in the past for a leukemia patient and it unpleasant with side effects.
Goodness knows what it is doing to him.
We need Brantly to carry the torch to get the other 15% of the population that are immune to Ebola in places like Gabon and use their platelets and antibodies for the world.
He knows what to do. The rest of the medics in the USA are, shall I say it; as always, useless.
I am sick of listening to the blame game of which protocol was not followed.
Keep your eye on the ball.
Let us have some action in creating a live vaccine platelet bank for America and the world.
It is almost too late.
Millions if not billions will die if rapid action to create a vaccine is not done today.
This is not a "walk in the park" disease like HIV/AIDS. That is child's play compared to Ebola.
Do you get it?
We are not Pontius Pilot. Washing our hands, will not help. Rome is burning and the Senate are resting on their laurels.
The press are diverting attention from the cure we need, not focusing on the heroic and only relevant work that Dr. Kent Brantly is doing and how he is doing it to save lives.
This is bigger than all the terrorist threats in the world.
50% or greater of the world's population will be dead within 19 months. My article last month said 20 months. One month has passed and the Ebola deaths are still doubling every month. There is only one way to beat this and that is from the antibody pool of the people who have already beaten it (survivors) and those that are immune.
America. God helps those who help themselves.
Just do it.

Larry Graves, will write an article on Dr Pierre Becquart's work in Gabon in west central Africa on Ebola and on the 15.3% immunity of the population to Ebola in 2010 and before that date.
Larry, I am counting on you to do so.
