    Seventy-two hours isn't fast enough. Flight time plus two hours. Better.

    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.

    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.

    I completely agree and believe the response estimate is not realistic, I hope they'll adjust it eventually.

    And, I called that emergency response number and got this message... "Home of the burger, what's your beef?"

    Ya sure ya didn't call Illinois'?




    Illinois activates hotline for Ebola questions


    The Illinois Department of Public Health has activated a hotline to answer the public's questions about Ebola. Department Director Dr. LaMar Hasbrouck announced the hotline Thursday. It will be managed by staff from the Illinois Poison Center who will be able to answer questions about the virus and the state's response.

    The hotline will be staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Operators will answer questions about how Ebola is spread, who's at risk, when someone should go to a doctor and other topics.....snip~
