Ebola spreads in countries with very poor public health systems (usually war torn countries). There would not be 700 plus deaths in an ebola outbreak in a modern industrialized nation. For example, just because there was a cholera epidemic in Nigeria does not mean that Seattle is at risk for one.
The concern with Ebola is the number of horrible deaths it could cause in the third world, not that it will break out and become some kind of a global pandemic. It would quickly be contained in any developed nation.
