I hope your post was tongue-in-cheek because shutting hospitals down is unthinkable. We can't just let people die! The health care experts are doing their best with a disease that currently has no cure, and some victims are surviving - I just wish it was better than 50%! The fatality rate in Africa is 70% or higher, with entire villages succumbing to the disease, so there is hope that we might yet find a cure. The health care experts we recently sent to Africa are setting up labs, etc - any news on how they're doing?
