Thai army ruler nominated as next prime minister

ASSOCIATED PRESS
BANGKOK, Aug 21: Three months after overthrowing Thailand´s last elected government, this Southeast Asian nation´s junta leader is stepping out of his army uniform for good — to take up the post of prime minister in a move critics say will only extend his time at the helm and consolidate the military´s grip on power.

Thailand´s junta-appointed legislature voted unanimously Thursday to name Gen. Prayuth Chan-ocha to the new job during a session in Bangkok. [More]

Worldwide, the Ebola virus is causing a scare. The deadly virus that transmits through human fluid has no cure, and it kills within a few weeks of infection. It has not been seen in Nepal to date. But airports are the porous borders with India which mean that Nepal is not safe from it forever. How aware are you of the Ebola virus, and do you think our government needs to focus on it?

I know Ebola is a deadly virus that’s spreading around the world, but I don’t know much about how it spreads. I think there’s a misconception, right from the top level, that Ebola won’t enter Nepal. This is wrong. The government needs to be more vigilant about it and take steps to contain it. The quarantine desks at the airport are a good step, but more needs to be done to identify the virus, contain its spread in Nepal, and protect Nepali citizens. I think everyone from our upper level management needs to take this issue more seriously.
