As We Face Yet ANOTHER Chaotic “Un-Presidented” Week, Here In The US — Keep In Mind What The DRC Faces…

Don’t misunderstand, day by day, on a global scale — with perhaps 32,000 children either missing. . . or in cages — essentially held, in privately-owned concentration camps (for profit) — Trump can do far more damage than any biological virus — and in far less elapsed time. We all know this to be true.

But we must never forget that many people around the globe — in their individual daily lives — face far more daunting circumstances than any of us can imagine. The WHO needs more funding — in order to procure, and ship the vaccines that offer a longer term solution to arresting the current 2019 outbreak in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

Here’s just one outlet’s version:

. . . .”The Committee is deeply disappointed that WHO and the affected countries have not received the funding and resources needed for this outbreak,” the WHO statement says. “The international community must step up funding and support strengthening of preparedness and response in DRC and neighboring countries.”

So far, there have been up to 2,100 cases of Ebola in this recent outbreak, and 1,400 people have died.

Jeremy Farrar, the director of the Wellcome Trust, said it was “truly frightening” and shows “no sign of stopping any time soon. . . .”

Perhaps the most vexing — and urgent — problem of all, on the ground in Butembo [and other urban centers]. . . is eradicating the now over 135 separate [life-threatening and often lethal] attacks, against health workers at the clinics treating the afflicted. We have repeatedly written about this. And there are no easy solutions. But we must. . . continue to try.

Onward — to a foggy Monday morning, then.
