Cross country runner carries competitor across the finish line.

High school senior Melanie Bailey was competing in cross country race
She spotted rival Danielle LeNoue lying on the ground, sobbing in pain
Miss LeNoue, who was 800 meters from finish, had torn patella tendon
Instead of running past her, Miss Bailey lifted competitor on to her back
Then carried her over the finish line in an incredible act of compassion
Since the race, the girls have been in contact and are now firm friends

Sarah Brightman ~ When It Rains In America

Perfect for a rainy morning in upstate New York.

Indeed ...

This may be the single most important -- and blatantly honest -- research report released by any official body since the beginning of the Ebola outbreak. The WHO's "Ebola situation assessment" report, found here, explains that only 95% of Ebola infections experience incubation within the widely-reported 21-day period. Here's the actual language from the report:

95% of confirmed cases have an incubation period in the range of 1 to 21 days; 98% have an incubation period that falls within the 1 to 42 day interval.

Unless the sentence structure is somehow misleading, this passage appears to indicate the following:

95% of Ebola incubations occur from 1 - 21 days
3% of Ebola incubations occur from 21 - 42 days
2% of Ebola incubations are not explained (why?)

If this interpretation of the WHO's statistics are correct, it would mean that:

1 in 20 Ebola infections may result in incubations lasting significantly longer than 21 days

The 21-day quarantine currently being enforced by the CDC is entirely insufficient to halt an outbreak

People who are released from observation or self-quarantine after 21 days may still become full-blown Ebola patients in the subsequent three weeks, even if they have shown no symptoms of infection during the first 21 days. (Yes, read that again...)

Any declaration that an outbreak is over requires 42 days with no new infections

Now the incubation time is known to be as long as 42 days.
