Doctors have said there is no way to know whether ZMapp made a difference or the survivors recovered on their own, as about 45 percent of people infected in this outbreak have.
Here’s the problem. When Ebola was 90 fatal an outbreak would burn itself out quickly because victims would die before having much chance to infect others. 45 percent fatality means that victims have a much better chance to pass the disease on. So the burnout we previously counted on is gone.
No panic but this could get mega death ugly. We forget the Modern epidemics which killed millions. Influenza was just one of them.
