NYC is always an infectious disease portal due to the large number of travelers from the world. Ebola Nigeria by spreading into its largest city, which has a population density comparable to NYC. Suffice to say its a HORRIBLE place for a pandemic to go, as it could rapidly spread.
No way, no how do I think not closing the borders after the outbreak was a good idea.
There is another concern that I have not seen mentioned. Liberia and other affected countries have no medical facilities. Is it not reasonable to assume that those in those countries that are infected and have the means will not fly to the US to get treatment?
Well if the Washington Times says its so then...
Great source there champ! I mean it was founded by the 2nd coming of Christ Sun Myung Moon and all. It has to be true.
Just let us know when the GOP decides to stop filibustering Surgeon General nominations so we can actually have one.
As with any viral outbreak, Ebola, measles, chickenpox, whatever, containment of the virus until it is no longer transmissible is the only reasonable course of action.
I fail to understand why such a simple fact escapes so many. When you were a child, and contacted chickenpox, did you mother send you off to school to infect the other children?
No, she kept you home until you were no longer contagious. Same principal here, just with bigger group of people and world wide, given modern air travel.
