For more than three decades Ebola has been ravaging parts of Africa. The most recent onslaught of the deadly disease in Western Africa has been utterly catastrophic to entire nations, leaving many to cope with horrific loss.
Well, now that the virus has reached the United States and enough Americans are terrified, because it’s no longer just happening to other people on the other side of the world, the for-profit health care industry finally seems to give a shit.
“We’ve been waiting decades for this!” said the CEO of Medical Company that chooses to remain nameless for obvious reasons. “Finally! It’s here, and we can turn a pretty penny on a vaccine that we could’ve put out more than a decade ago, but the timing wasn’t lucrative enough. I know I know, all those people in Africa, but c’mon now, we’d be giving it to them. They can’t afford our products. What’s the point of staving off illness if there’s no money to be made. But now, now it’s come to America! Now we’ll make money hand over fist as people rush to get he vaccine. Remember, it’s not about lives saved, it’s about money made. It’s the American way. If you don’t agree, you’re not a true American.”
We here at Free Wood Post will keep you up to date as a potential vaccine may emerge soon for broad population use now that the virus has reached a critical profit point.
