Calls automatically triggered to supply chains within minutes of notification. Two planes on the runway with pilots in reserve to take off within minutes bringing essential gear and supplies to meet the team on the ground and dispatch material to Ground Zero.
In fact, we should have already had this kind of team/plan in place. With the CDC's budget, it's a sin we didn't.
Thank you, Quazi!
Ebola as a virus is not a major threat to the US, but... it is a huge threat to any political leader that is not prepared to lead an expeditious and professional appearing response to an infection that occurs within their jurisdiction.
That's what the President and Governor Quinn are doing. Getting ready to show a professional and expeditious response. That's all.
And, it's good that they are. It only helps us as citizens to feel safe, and more importantly, helps those that get all worked up over these type things to be able to sleep at night. Plus, it should take the politics out of any actual response - which in my opinion, is the largest benefit of these actions.
Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.
