My brother was basically forced by his daughter to get an Iphone and get rid of his android. He is 83 and now has to relearn how to use it.

I don't see what makes them any better. Especially for him.

Shit, at 83 shouldn't he have a jitterbug? Wink
 At his age he probably used to dance the jitterbug Razz

Anyway I don't know anything about a Jitterbug phone . Are they easy to use or something?

Yes, a no frills, basic phone with big easy to use buttons.

OK well he's 83 not a nit wit LOL, There's nothing wrong with his eyes. He knows how to take and post pics on FB

I'm always concerned when hundreds of people die for no real reason. And in this case they don't know how much the Ebola has spread or where it's going. Why wouldn't I be concerned at least a little?

Funny I didn't even look and see it was you that posted. I just assumed it was CW because it always has been LOL.
Other that when Wonky was trolling CW and mocking every single post CW made on this subject .
Anyway we all should be concerned when hundreds of people die for no real reason. I was meaning to ask CW why it's important to him to update us here? I don't have a problem with it Like Wonky I just suddenly wondered.

Quote: Ebola cases and deaths in eastern Congo have risen sharply in the past week, authorities said Tuesday, placing the blame on recurrent attacks on treatment centers and health workers.
There were 126 new cases and 83 deaths between April 22 and April 28, according to the Ministry of Health in Kinshasa.
The number of fatalities has risen rapidly, from around 600 at the end of March to over 900 a month later.
“As soon as there is a security incident, such as the destruction of the Ebola treatment centers or the murder of our colleague (from the World Health Organization), the main response activities are suspended for an indefinite period,” ministry spokeswoman Jessica Ilunga told dpa.
“Without these activities, the virus continues to spread and kill more people in the community,” she added.
So far there have been 1,480 cases and 970 deaths, since the outbreak — the second-largest in history — began last year.

The Ministry of Public Health said in its latest update on Friday that 14 new deaths from the virus were recorded, taking the toll to 1,008 deaths from more than 1,450 confirmed cases registered since the epidemic erupted in August.

Quote:Total cases since the epidemic began in Aug. 2018 surpassed 2,000 this week, reports Axios. A World Health Organization official says the outbreak could take up to two years to contain in a "worst-case scenario," per CNN.

More than 1,900 cases have been confirmed and 94 cases deemed probable. 1,367 people are confirmed dead due to the disease, reports Axios. Ebola typically kills around half of those who become infected, but this outbreak has a fatality rate of 70 percent, reports CNN.

Quote:The deadly Ebola outbreak in Congo is now an international health emergency, the World Health Organization announced Wednesday after the virus spread this week to a city of 2 million people . A WHO expert committee declined on three previous occasions to advise the United Nations health agency to make the declaration for this outbreak, even though other experts say it has long met the conditions. More than 1,600 people have died since August in the second-deadliest Ebola outbreak in history
