German virologist, Jonas Schmidt-Chanasit has said that the time to stop the deadly virus has passed….
A German Ebola expert has reportedly said that it is too late to contain the virus and that the disease will kill 5 million people in the affected countries before it “burns out.”
Jonas Schmidt-Chanasit of the Bernhard Nocht Institute for Tropical Medicine in Hamburg told Germany’s Deutsche Welle that:
The right time to get this epidemic under control in these countries has been missed,” “That time was May and June.” “Now it will be much more difficult.”
Schmidt-Chanasit, a virologist, supposedly said further that “efforts should now be focused on stopping the transmission of the virus to other countries.”
The Centre For Research On Globalization said on its website that the virologist stated that hope is all but lost for the inhabitants of Sierra Leone and Liberia and that the virus will only “burn itself out” when it has infected the entire population and killed five million people.
Schmidt-Chanasit also said the virus will “become endemic” and that the only solution now is to “help where it is still possible, in Nigeria and Senegal for example.”
The Ebola outbreak of 2014 has been described as the worst ever by the World Health Organization and over 2000 people have died from the disease in West Africa
