    Default Ebola in Lesotho

    Developing story out of Lesotho. EWN reports a confirmed case of Ebola.

    How can this happen out of nowhere? Ficksburg 23 km. How will SA respond?

    news24 is reporting that it was a simulation exercise ? what ever that might mean. They are not clear if there is indeed a case in lesotho though.

    They need to clarify this before panic spreads

    Hell, what can one believe these days. Nothing is what it seems.

    Could it possibly be a cover up?

    Imagine what it would do to be to international perceptions of SA.

    No chance anyone is going to make it to Lesotho from the Congo with Ebola. Then walk into a clinic in a rural area.

    Incubation period for from point of exposure to onset of symptoms is 2-21 Days so definately possible.

    Correct. But the scenario presented is highly unlikely. Which is what I was getting at. Amazing it hasn't appeared anywhere else with that incubation period.
