    "Even" RDTs do require training before usage...as shown also nicely in this beautiful picture report of a malaria outbreak in the Indian Tripura state: http://www.aljazeera.com/indepth/inpictures/2014/07/pictures-malaria-outbreak-indi-2014730101813379615.html Just putting the blood in the right well is apparently not that easy...

    If you want a disease to be worried about, forget Ebola. Try malaria instead. In 2013, malaria killed more than 1 200,000 people in Africa, which is about 1 000 times as many people as Ebola has killed so far, as claimed by WHO. Seriously: you might catch malaria and die.

    But Ebola is more lucrative for Bigpharma and their salesmen in Geneva.
