Isn't walking dead set in Atalanta?

I see this as a mistake. Why?
1. Bureaucracies are notoriously impotent. In fact the CDC has just recently had several scandals (read this thread)
2. Hospitals and health care in general in America are in a state of turmoil.
3. Government rarely makes things better.
3.People already catch serious conditions in hospitals due to failed procedures.
4.Atlanta frequently drops the ball. Sorry but I live here, so...
But, I wish the patients all the best and the doctors and the researchers and Emory. I will be thrilled to be wrong.

The President just addressed the fears expressed here by expanding the list of diseases that qualify for quarantine. Not exactly what you wanted I know, but that's how politics works. So congratulations. ...The fear about Ebola allowed the play, but there are other actual outbreaks in the US that now qualify for quarantine because of it. More important, peoples' attitudes have changed - it's now abundantly clear that many, many people support choosing the illusion of safety over freedoms.

Oh my God an E-Bola case in the U.S.!
Let's hope to God it's an isolated case.

Unless the bug is already here, and this is a massive..."look something shiny"...diversion tactic.
That is my biggest fear. All of the Friday Dump style new info coming out today is disconcerting at best. Emergency Bio-Drills in NYC, Executive order from the magic pen on health issues, and CDC announcement of 20 Bio-Hazard quarantine locations in the U.S. 3 of them on the border....IDK...hinky meter redlining again...

Whatever their reasons are is beside the point. 2 people we know about pose less of a risk and threat than 1 person we do not know about spreading the disease at an airport, in an insecure plane, where people from that plane go all over and catch flights all over the world spreading it even further and faster than 2 people contained and quarantined in Atlanta ever could!
I give up trying to explain this panic away.
