Did they just start trying for a vaccine, or is it just coincidence that the vaccine is almost ready now that this epidemic is occurring?
It was still 50 white people away from mattering before, but now we've obviously moved closer to that threshold.
I kid. It's more the idea that it's idiotic to vaccinate large populations of people against a disease that kills, generally, 900 or so people a year, and mutates frequently. Basically the vaccine profile is like Flu, requiring a new one essentially every season, which is a lot of work. Without the Flu vaccine, flu would kill tens of millions more people (in no way an exaggeration), Ebola isn't "worth it" at the moment because they actual mortality rates are so low and transmission is relatively easy to curtail. Certainly compared to flu or the like.
To make a long story short, I don't take any responsibility for anything I post here. It's not news, it's not truth, it's not serious. It's parody. It's satire. It's bitter. It's angsty. Your mother's a *****. You like to jack off dogs. That's right, you heard me. You like to grab that dog by the bone and rub it like a ski pole. Your dad? ***. Your priest? Straight. **** off and let me post. It's not true, it's all in good fun. Now go away.
