wearable have been such a failure.

it's time for a markeatable moment. Plague and quarantine ; challenge, to prevent asymptomatic people from spreading the disease sans repressive and costly medical quarantine.

Fear of Ebola is growing by the day. Quarantine is becoming a 'thing' but quarantine itself is bad for commerce and the consumer and it is inhibitive. it can score politicians points but only to a certain extent.

THE solution; the ebola monitoring bracelet.

People can now be provided a (mandatory?) monitoring bracelet of temperature , sweat, oxygen in the blood, and pulse----and gps. a networked cloud vitals monitoring system detects early symptoms and automatically notifies wearers to come in for voluntary or mandatory checkup with Ebola clinic. Bracelet , options include, audio-visual compliance 'alarm' for 3rd parties, haptic vibrator alarm, remote (un)lock, and biometric-time-stamp confirmation wearer ID.

Healthlet sold to government employees, WHO, west african residents at large.

No more quarantine for the asymptomatic.

       I just noticed - multiple capital letters, and in appropriate places.   

       Sort out the category choice and I'd bun this.

       Deliberately infect everyone with ebola. See who survives without treatment.   

       Et viola; instant population control, and no need to spent money developing a vaccine or a treatment.   

       What could possibly go wrong … ?
