Most likely it is just "misplaced". I'm sure they have "top men" working on it. wink.gif

I was under the impression that a middle of the road mortality rate can be more deadly in an outbreak then a higher mortality virus depending on things like infection time, ease of spreading, and rate the disease courses through your body. Like Ebola for instance is unlikely to go to a full blown widespread epidemic because it burns itself out too quickly.

Correct. Population density is also a factor. Ebola is also limited by the areas it's endemic to because they're very remote.

So is the location of the outbreak.

Venezuela probably has much less health regulation and care than the US.
