Yes, well, until we control out actual borders ... it won't matter what pretty little lip noises and flight bans we make.

This one scares the hell out of me.

The number of healthcare workers who are sick or already dead is alarming. These are top people who know how to avoid getting infected. And despite all those precautions they still got it.

The next great pandemic has never been a question of "if", it's been a question of "when".

I'm concerned it will spread to Europe or Asia and then there is no stopping it.

Indeed. It doesn't make sense how they're handling this outbreak. You would thing they would halt all flights and transportation out of the infected countries until it was resolved. Basically quarantine the places that are infected and not allow anyone in or out. But hey, that's common sense and since when does anyone in the government have any of that?



Maybe containment is not the long range goal?

Scary thought there...

You may have a point:


Sawyer was immediately quarantined upon arrival in Lagos–a city of 21 million people–and Nigerian authorities say his fellow travelers were advised of Ebola’s symptoms and then were allowed to leave. The incubation period can be as long as 21 days, meaning anyone infected may not fall ill for several weeks.

World Health Organization on Ebola: 'This outbreak is moving faster than our efforts to control it. If the situation continues to deteriorate, the consequences can be catastrophic in terms of lost lives but also severe socioeconomic disruption and a high risk of spread to other countries' - @ReutersWorld

6 people tested for Ebola in US: report

“There have been about a half a dozen patients who have had their blood tested because of concern, those particular patients their stories were not made public,” said CNN’s chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta. “I’m not sure if that’s because of heightened concern by the hospital or what that means exactly.”


But also this...it might malaria.
