The other deathly viruses besides ISIS and Al Qaeda ... MERS and Ebola

There's the pro-Saudi terrorist army of headchoppers and crucifiers marching in Iraq and Syria and then there's the other march of other kind of viruses, equally deadly.
See how beautifully the Sanjay Gupta clip is avoiding talking about the camel urine issue.  Camel urine is used for "medicinal" purposes in the Sunni Arab tribes.  Political correctness is a crime.

From BBC:
....Mers virus: Saudi Arabia raises death toll to 282. Saudi Arabia says 282 people are now confirmed to have been killed by the Mers virus, almost 100 more than initially thought.

The increase came after a national review of hospital data from the time the virus emerged in 2012.
The deputy health minister, who has been criticised for his handling of the crisis, was sacked on Monday.
Cases of the virus, for which there is no known cure, have been confirmed in almost a dozen other countries.

Saudi authorities said there had now been 688 confirmed Mers (Middle East Respiratory Syndrome) infections in the kingdom. Before the revision the number of cases was believed to be 575........

From Humanosphere:
....Ebola epidemic raging ‘out of control’ in West Africa. The ongoing Ebola outbreak in West Africa shows little sign of slowing down. There have been 337 reported deaths and 528 cases, according to the World Health Organization, since March. Yesterday, the medical aid group Doctors Without Borders is warned that not enough resources are on the ground to contain the outbreak in Guinea, Sierra Leone, and Liberia.

“The epidemic is out of control,” said Dr. Bart Janssens, director of operations for Doctors Without Borders. “Ebola is no longer a public health issue limited to Guinea. It is affecting the whole of West Africa.”

He says that the group is struggling to deal with the large number of suspected cases. They are responsible for treating 470 patients suspected of having Ebola since March. Much of the challenge is due to the fact that this is the first outbreak of the disease in the region. Infected persons are not going straight to medical facilities due to misinformation about Ebola and a distrust in healthcare facilities.

“We have reached our limits,” said Janssens. “Despite the human resources and equipment deployed by Doctors Without Borders in the three affected countries, we are no longer able to send teams to the new outbreak sites.”.....................
