But, from a epidemiological tracking model point of view, you look at it from a Case (Infected Person) and its Offspring Cases.
Now, as Epidemics go, that's not bad at all.
More common are 1->16->256->4096.
Still, for the hospital treatment to be practical, It actually has to be less than Unity.
Meaning, that only one of every two cases creates a new case.
Anything above unity, from an Epidemic Control perspective, is a recipe for disaster.

It may be my own failings. You do not appear to be stupid. The only other thing I can think of is intentional dishonesty.
Maybe like Obola/Ebama and the Democrats you want to keep our borders open so you can change the electorate to one more of your liking.
"Viruses can change at a very fast rate. Viruses make more of themselves, the only known way a virus can make more of itself is by taking over the host cell. The virus have to develop quicker then their host cell. If the virus doesn't develop quicker then their host, the host would develop to where a virus wouldn't be able to take over other cells. The viruses have to stay ahead of the game to survive. Viruses have to have their host around to make more of themselves. Every new cell will have a copy of the virus in it causing the virus to spread quickly. The virus changes in the same way that it spreads, when the infected cell reproduces sometimes they're are not always exact copy's somethings are left out or added to the virus causing it to mutate over time. The mutation can cause the virus to die or become even stronger. Mutation is when the DNA or RNA of the genetic material is being changed. The ability to change from one host to the next or one organism to the next is one characteristic that has given the flu virus a long life and almost impossible to destroy. Mutations happen when the DNA of a single cell gets changed. One problem with viruses spreading and changing is having to have a fresh host to take over. Viruses can also spread and mutate during fertilization. The virus mutates in only the egg or sperm cell so when the cell starts to reproduce it will be infected with the virus."
Hmmm...I am not sure what your training is, but I'm pretty sure that no where in that explanation did I see that a virus considers how advanced a country is in its goal of mutating....Mabey you need more training.
Yes, virus can mutate. The flu virus for example has different strains every year as it mutates. It doesn't change the way it is transmitted, though. Again, get this: it is highly unlikely that the Ebola virus will become airborne. Impossible? No. Likely? Not at all.
The virus doesn't "consider" anything. It doesn't think (you are too funny!). What changes is the epidemiology of transmission, making an epidemic or a minor outbreak behave radically differently in a Third World versus a First World country. You saying it doesn't matter is a *collossal* blunder, and for a person who makes this blunder to be putting down my training and knowledge of the topic is rather hilarious.
I don't expect you to believe me because it doesn't fit your political agenda. Once this situation blows over and the United States does not get an Ebola African-like epidemic (it won't) then maybe you'll look back and realize that your concerns are foolish in epidemiological terms. They aren't foolish in political terms, though, since they are likely to get voters to refrain from voting for the candidates you don't want to see elected, in a week. In this sense, do run around yelling that the sky is falling because yes, it does favor your side and yes, it's reasonable (although irresponsible) to do it - just, don't pretend it is realistic, or else *you* look foolish.
Meanwhile the second nurse is free from the virus so the only two cases of US transmission are over and no general public outbreak has happened which should give you pause (like I said, in developed country with decent medical facilities and isolation regulations, Ebola has a really hard time spreading like wild fire as it does in Africa).
Unfortunately the United States is becoming an anti-Science country. Too bad. People pay attention to bad pop science - "Oh my God, the virus will become airborne, we're doomed" - and ignore good science - the one that indicates that this virus has been around for a while and has not become airborne, and likely won't.
No, I don't need any more training, thank you. I hold two doctoral degrees, it's more than enough training.
