    Africa stems ebola via border closings, luck

    NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) -- Health officials battling the Ebola outbreak that has killed more than 4,500 people in West Africa have managed to limit its spread on the continent to five countries - and two of them appear to have snuffed out the disease. The developments constitute a modest success in an otherwise bleak situation.



    Officials credit tighter border controls, good patient-tracking and other medical practices, and just plain luck with keeping Ebola confined mostly to Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea since the outbreak was first identified nearly seven months ago.

    Seems like africa understands that closing borders contains the disease, why doesn't Obama and the CDC?

    You don't close borders unless you have enough food stamps to go around.

    No, is that how you took it? I propose we close our border from nations proven to be currently experiencing an ebola outbreak-save our military and medical personnel.

    The US doesn't seem to be handling this well. I say we (Canada) should look at closing the border.

    Because those people cant just go to other countries and buy tickets and get on airplanes to come here?

    And our military and medical personnel need to be quarantined before returning. I believe that's the plan for the military anyway.
