    all they had to do is give the man the same drug they gave the 2 white health workers in atlanta , they are cured and gone home . i think this man died cause they choice to knock him off , hospitals do this daily … they decided that to send him back home africans in this country would be piss and protest .. and the threat of his country killing him for betrayal wa high to .. if he went back he was gonna die .. they though if they kill him off that would take care of the issue . .but now another person in dallas is diagnosed with it .. that was breaking news today .. so what they are doing is masking the problem . i also said there are someone at home who has it and scared to come forward after seeing what happen to this man .. this is devastating by the day and hour ..
