In November I wrote that the numbers the media had been reporting on Ebola looked suspect.
What ticks me off is the use of numbers taken out of thin air by folks who basically want more money. Why not be honest? The numbers are bad enough as it is.
According to Michael Fumento who wrote on this back in August, I am right.
The political chiefs at the WHO — and at our own Centers for Disease Control — were promoting hysteria in bids for more funding. They either refused to look for the facts, or ignored them.
The simple truth is this: Epidemics have been peaking and disappearing throughout history, long before there were health organizations, vaccines or effective treatments. Ebola was no different.
