From the re-emergence of ebola in Sierra Leon, lassa fever in Nigeria, and the zika virus in Brazil and other equatorial countries are we seeing the battle royal for the planet? Many movies have captured the imagination for decades about an imminent invasion of the planet by aliens. But we are now experiencing an invasion from within,the scourge of viruses. You would think that in this age of technological advancement man would have been able to deal a crushing blow on these invaders. Maybe its good old karma, paying man back for his irresponsible use of the planets resources. Maybe its evolution- a stronger species staking its claim. Whatever it is, we have to get our wits about us. Because things are getting ugly, and survival as they say, is for the fittest!
