    There is no way, we should scare Ebola. Ethiopian had an active and effective surveillance at grass root level. MOH, please keep the good work
    I think the Westerns had to buy the Ethiopians instrument.
    We are gonna place the same strategy and tactic for the DC Ebola Politicians, hope will see the result soon. The most funny thing of these politicians is, they strip off their Ethiopian citizenship long time, but often times seen playing foul game in Ethiopian politics. As far as my information is concerned, the recent hooligans who broke Ethiopian Embassy, all had an American Pass port. So unless the American government held accountable these hooligans, Ethiopian government should take a serious diplomatic measures, to extent breaking diplomatic ties.
    Residents of Addis should be ready for huge demonstration against the American government for violating international law and will serious ask the American government to take measures against these Hooligans and disclose to the public.
    Every one of us knew very well how the Ethiopian government protects the safety of American Embassy, we in return request like for like response…nothing less will definitely Jeopardize the diplomatic relations of the two countries

      You should be ignorant or ill informed. In a country where less than 5% has full medical access, you’re bragging there is surveillance system at a grass root level….kkkkkkk
      Almost 80% morbidity in Ethiopia is due to preventable communicable and nutritional diseaes that’s assocaited with low economic development.
      For instance, do you know the biggest referral hospital in Ethiopia, Black Lion, is ill equipped even with basic materials like generator and oxygen?…walk in and check the long line, the hygiene and rotten infrastructure.
      You don’t need to lie always to credit woyane. Sometimes , face the fact.
      You’re diisonnected from the reality.

    We are fighting ISIS to save oil , fighting EBOLA is to save lives.The USA oil driven economy will sink without war.“The War is Worth Waging”: Afghanistan’s Vast Reserves of Minerals and Natural Gas. Sen. Chambliss: America’s ‘oil-driven’ economy needs a stable Iraq. “We should not go to war for cheaper gasoline, but our economy is driven by that, and that’s why providing stability in that part of the world is important to us,” said Chambliss.

    Instability breeds terrorism, said the Georgia Republican.

    “We’re seeing terrorists being able to be trained to carry out missions against America and Americans,” said Chambliss. “This is one more complex issue, but certainly the issue of oil is part of the complexity of the issue.”


    The President is under pressure to help the embattled Iraqi government stave off a lightning advance toward Baghdad by Sunni fighters of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.

    But Sen. Saxby Chambliss, the ranking Republican on the Senate intelligence committee, says there are
    “Our economy is still oil-driven. And it’s important that in that part of the world – not just in Iraq, but in that part of the world – that we have as much stability as possible,” said Chambliss. Pressed as to whether ISIS is capable of carrying out an attack on U.S. soil, Chambliss said Americans need to understand “we are still at war with the terrorist community.”

    “These are some of the terrorists that we simply have got to carry the fight to on their soil, and not on our soil,” said Chambliss.

    its very scary that the living situation in the capital is too conjested that the volunerability of our people is serious. its hard to trust EPRDF right now even the media telling the four suspected cases in Yared Hospital. Bole airport still not giving a clue to their safty procedures or for safty of other European passangers as well as for our safty as well. i dont know how west Africa passangers are treated at Bole. The only option is to trust what is said by MOH but i really doubt that
