    Having read about this for years in general, it wasnt a surprise to me and it isnt to the CDC. It's been spelled out very clearly in all sorts of scenarios...and real life cases.

    And we've been discussing the higher numbers, necessary quarantines and restrictions, and the major infringements on people's civil rights.

    Maybe the public will have to be really really scared before they'll accept those infringements? Good point, thank you. Because it can...and may...get really really ugly.

    The economy will suffer big time. The govt will be trying to balance control with keeping the $$$$ flowing.

    Like I said: ugly.

    Wont disagree but have you weighed the economic consequences against the viral consequences?

    And it keeps on growing in Dallas....

    Texas Says That Up to 100 Are at Risk of Ebola Exposure

    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    And this patient in Dallas was the best case scenario. He reported to the hospital when he became symptomatic, he told them he had just traveled from Liberia... he checked ALL of the boxes needed to trigger his quarantine and they sent him home.

    All of the best laid plans and thorough protocols don't mean a thing if they can't withstand human error.

    Patient #1 was a best case scenario and we failed.

    I'm thinking of the consequences of a nationwide epidemic that could kill tens of thousands of Americans.

    Best case scenario, is that the disease dies off by itself.

    And absolutely no talk of quarantine of these possibly infected. Fail right out of the gate.

    Re: Eighty People in Dallas Area Being Monitored for Ebola

    the airlines and governments involved need to have a serious quarantine policy either pre flight or post arrival if planes are going to be allowed to fly out of that region at all. to not do so would be a big mistake.

    The sad thing is....now there is a chance that it will find a host here in the US and become endemic...popping up sporadically in the future.

    It's not likely to kill thousands here. Unless it turns airborne which is still not likely. Possible and definitely worth considering, but not panic-worthy.

    Absolutely has to be pre-flight.

    The civil rights crises and economics will be an outrage here if it's on arrival. (I"m not implying it would be wrong, just my predicted consequences)
