    The only illusion is the one where people think Obama and his hack at the CDC will keep us safe.

    I dont care about their economy, I care about the health of US citizens. Only AFTER that, do I care about their health and economies in the outbreak region.

    You dont play around with a pandemic virus with a 50-90% mortality PERIOD.

    Anyway, Jesse Jackson understands the real problem and was able to pin it down before Al Sharpton got a chance. Rev. Jesse Jackson accuses Hospital of racism over Ebola death | eCanadaNow
    One of the reasons I got into medicine was because its not PC.
    When you attempt to make science PC, you are turning it on its head-spin over fact. Ideology over reality.

    Not good enough-this is how it turns out-these idiots in washington cant even act because of their idiotic PC mindset.

    I don't know but by middle of next week we should have an idea. He got drilled today in front of a House Committee.

    The best thing to do is to fight the disease at its source and effectivly track patients who are exhibiting symptoms of the disease.
    Nobody is saying close travel and then relax. Its simply another means to prevent spread of disease-which is a tenet of infectious medicine.

    Do you know what the purpose of Ellis Island was?

    So you're all for letting people fly in who have the disease but are not exhibiting symptoms ?

    The current process they're using wouldn't have stopped Duncan.
    This is one of the fundamental misunderstandings people have of disease-they think merely asking about symptoms or looking for signs will prevent this. Fevers wax and wane. People dont notice or dont say that they have fever symptoms, etc.-therefore its NOT reliable to screen this way.

    Add in lack of training and operator error in the screens they have used (inaccurate thermometer readings, etc) and its setting themselves up for failure.

    Alas, we have a chump in the white house and we know know chumps do.

    Wasn't there a doctor saying a simple blood test would tell if someone is infected.....that the body would be producing antibodies to something not seen?

    Controlling the disease in Africa? Do you have any idea what you are asking? This is an area of the world where people wipe their butts with their hands then proceed to cook dinner. There are over 3000 deaths, and lord knows how many illnesses. Few are quarantined, and so contact are in the millions. Good luck
    Plus its ass backward. Many there think Ebola was spread there from the US and distrust our presence. They think Ebola is a curse-literally. They attack and shun survivors of the disease, they wash bodies and then wash themselves with the same water-all of this instead of burying the bodies. In some cases, they have attacked healthcare workers.

    THAT is what we are dealing with.

    And? We'd also lose a way to rapidly spread a highly fatal and contagious disease.

    By keeping open a way for the disease to rapidly spread to the rest of the world. Where those people now exposed can find out there if they are infected.
    Brilliant.
