With all the stories regarding celebrity deaths and such, it sure is easy to see why its hard for the old media to find some room concerning the West African Ebola epidemic.
Today’s Philadelphia Inquirer did manage to sneak in a few paragraphs on page 4 about how its going to last six more months.
As of yesterday, Aug. 15, the reported toll was 1,145 deaths and 2,127 cases of the disease.
The World Health Organization (WHO) claims the reported toll “vastly underestimate the magnitude of the outbreak.”
Other stories of interest not getting much mention is a report that Ukraine has attacked Russian troops — something denied by Russia — and leaves changing color in Pittsburgh due to record cold temperatures pretty much putting paid to all claims of global warming.
