Prepper News Watch for November 14, 2014

Prepper News Watch

As of the November 12, 2014, the WHO Ebola update shows 14,098 cases of Ebola with 5,160 deaths. This drops the mortality rate to 36.6%; this is the overall average, suggesting the mortality rate is even less more recently. The charts also shows the spread of Ebola is slowing down. I hold to my opinion that by the end of the year, Ebola will have dwindled to a point where the concern will be on highly localized areas, and a non-issue outside of those few countries in West Africa (we’re practically there now).

Don’t discount this as an overly-hyped media story. While there was no cause for panic in countries outside those in Africa, Ebola was a real threat that needed to be managed properly to prevent a global crisis. More importantly, you can derive a great deal of practical information from this outbreak and the other serious outbreaks we have had in the past decade or so. As we see more outbreaks, one of them will be serious enough to justify panic and extreme measures. As a prepper, you should be prepared for this before the next outbreak occurs.
