    Ebola killed 1,583 according to the wiki. Over 40 years. Compared that to:

    935,000 a year for tuberculosis.
    1,534,000 a year for HIV/AIDs.
    130,000 a year for measles.
    618,000 a year for malaria.
    149,000 a year hepatitis B.
    48,000 a year leishmaniasis.

    I could go on.

    ... but you know, our medical infrastructures should drop all the resources from all those diseases and focus on ebola.

    Whether they should or shouldn't, it certainly seems like they did.
