As of early Wednesday morning the WHO had not released updated data on the Ebola transmission rate in West Africa. Given the rest of my life, I have to pound out a post before 0900 on October 29 if I am to get you anything on October 30. There are related reports that I might share, but it is probably more helpful to minimize my contribution to the noise level until some meaningful signal is available.
Late on Wednesday afternoon WHO released an update. Here it is. Received too late for my further analysis.
By the way, trying to seriously follow major trends and events in order to have something to write to you each Thursday is a very helpful intellectual and temporal discipline. I would not know half what I know about Ebola if I was not trying to fulfill my relationship with you. Thank you.
