Given my own monthly feminine hygiene ritual in the developed world - USA, it occurred to me and female members in our family that USA should provide feminine hygiene products to girls and women in the affected EBOLA Countries to decrease the chance

With thanks to Rainer Winkler for inspiration. These already exist and are ready to go. If modifications to suits turn out to be impractical maybe a  small refrigerated room (Cool Room) would cool workers for a while.  These can be bought  or fabrica

While spraying items contaminated with disinfectant solution/chlorax, areas may be missed, therefore missing killing the virus. Immersing contaminated supplies that must be resused in chlorax/disinfectant solution could help kill the virus. Prefer

Many documented sources are available on the chemistry values after a patient develops Ebola.  What about comparing blood values of someone who has never been in contact with Ebola then the same person who now has Ebola, what markers have changed?  W
