Ebola Comes to Spain

Fri 8th Aug 2014
Ebola Comes to Spain

A Spanish priest infected with the Ebola virus in Liberia is the first patient to be sent back to Europe with the deadly disease.

An air force plane from Spain was sent on August 6 to get Fr Miguel Pajares, 75, who was in West Africa doing missionary work.

The illness has now claimed the lives of some 932 people in the region since February.

There is no known cure and no vaccine to protect against the disease.

Ebola causes severe fever and, in the worst cases, unstoppable bleeding.

I appreciate that Father Wotsisname probably had good intentions. but endangering the lives of Millions of Spaniards and costing the state thousands of Euros is only going to make me think twice before paying into Catholic funraisers for Africa again !
