Ebola, nouvel Eldorado pour l'industrie pharmaceutique

The Ebola epidemic in West Africa is growing exponentially and models show there could be hundreds of thousands of cases in a matter of months. Researchers are beginning to look beyond the models and at possible scenarios to prepare for what might happen next. Among the things they worry about is an increased risk of spread to new countries, changes in the virus that might make it endemic, a rising mortality from other diseases, and food shortages. Vaccines and home care kits might help curb new infections; whether travel bans are useful to prevent the spread of the virus remains a topic of debate.

Ebola : le pire est à venir

BREAKING NEWS
Tuesday, September 23, 2014 10:20 AM EDT
Yet another set of ominous projections about the Ebola epidemic in West Africa was released Tuesday, in a report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that gave worst- and best-case estimates for Liberia and Sierra Leone based on computer modeling.
In the worst-case scenario, Liberia and Sierra Leone could have 21,000 cases of Ebola by Sept. 30 and 1.4 million cases by Jan. 20 if the disease keeps following its current trajectory, without effective methods to contain it. These figures take into account the fact that many cases go undetected, and estimate that there are actually 2.5 times as many as reported.
The report does not include figures for Guinea because case counts there have gone up and down in ways that cannot be reliably modeled.
In the best-case model — which assumes that the dead are buried safely and that 70 percent of patients are treated in settings that reduce the risk of transmission — the epidemic in both countries would be “almost ended” by Jan. 20, the report said. It showed the proportion of patients now in such settings as about 18 percent in Liberia and 40 percent in Sierra Leone.
