Bob Geldof and the horror of Ebola

I am a huge admirer of Bob Geldof and all he has done to raise awareness for those less fortunate than most of us. 

In the video clip he uses these powerful and emotive words to describe Ebola and its impact.

"Although Ebola has existed for millennia, maternity has allowed it to escape and the people first affected are the poorest and most vulnerable. There is one horrifying feature - that this filthy disease makes humans untouchable. So no mother can comfort their dying child, no lovers can cradle each other, no wife can hold her husband's hand as they die. That is so inhuman. That goes against everything we are supposed to be".
