Ebola-victim-AfricaNational and international media write more about Scotland deciding to leave Great Britain, how to punish that NFL player who knocked his wife unconscious, the ISIS war in Middle East oil region, or the deaths of two famous comedians––than they do about the tens of thousands of Ebola victims in Africa.

Even as the U.S. prepares to send troops who will lend logistical support to medical teams on that continent, and multi-billion dollar corporations ‘struggle’ to find a vaccine cure for Ebola, the dire need for medical workers grows constantly.

An aid worker for Medecins Sans Frontieres laments:  “It is extremely sad to see the indifference of the international community with regards to this epidemic. It is great to see an added interest and investment in research for vaccines, but we urgently need experts who are physically present and more structures on the ground here in West Africa, where the situation continues to be catastrophic.”

Already some 2,630 people are known to have died from Ebola in West Africa.  Experts estimate that if Ebola is not stopped, it will kill 5 million people world-wide. The most effective cure so far is for patients to receive blood transfusions from someone who was cured of the disease.  Unfortunately, that news has criminals selling what claims to be such blood on the Black Market.

According to the Editorial Board of ‘USA Today,’ America plans to send 3,000 troops the region to assist medical efforts. Costs will range up to $ 1.26 billion. “The plan . . . calls for more doctors and health care professionals; . . .

. . . more portable hospitals, laboratories, and other medical facilities; and increased training for first responders and other medical officials throughout West Africa. The troops . . . will not be providing ‘direct patient care,’ but instead provide logistical and engineering support to health care professionals. The military will also begin courses to train as many as 500 new health care workers.

Brenda Goodman of WebMD Health News adds:  “The military also plans to send engineers to build another 17 units to treat people with Ebola. Each unit will have 100 beds, greatly increasing the space that is available to isolate patients in the region. . . personnel from the U.S. Public Health Service will deploy to the new hospitals that are being set up. To support families caring for loved ones with Ebola, health workers will distribute 400,000 infection-control kits [containing] disinfectants and medications to help ease symptoms.

The Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy now claims that because Ebola may pass through the air, health Face-mask-or-respiratorsworkers need more than face-masks: “We believe there is scientific and epidemiologic evidence that Ebola virus has the potential to be transmitted via infectious aerosol particles both near and at a distance from infected patients, which means that healthcare workers should be wearing respirators, not face-masks.” Again, expensive equipment needed there.

While the U.S. government takes such action, even more onus is on the Body of Christ in this country. This site continuously begs readers to pray for authentic end-time revival, including special callings for ministers of healing.  Only the power of God’s Holy Spirit working through servants of The LORD Jesus Christ can truly stem this plague, and others coming to flood the globe with death.

Plus size Christian sweatshirts constantly boast:“And in that same hour He cured many of their infirmities and plagues, and of evil spirits; and unto many that were blind He gave sight (Luke 7: 21).” It will be a sad day if Ebola has to come to the U.S. before Christians begin praying for healing revival! That may be too late!
