I think the thing that scares me today is how many people I have heard who are just freaking out over this. People who are otherwise sensible and rational are acting like this thing is the end of the world and we're all going to die and be plunged into a Last Ship/The Walking Dead style holocaust when even if there is an outbreak, it's highly unlikely to get anywhere if people keep there heads.

But even before anything has a chance to happen, no one is keeping their head.

Me too. But I sort of understand it - there has been so much damage control, and so many lies, and people just read the headlines anyway 'cuz those cute little phones don't encourage actual reading and learning.

Great thread. The major problem with society is that everyone is too trusting in government, officials, or professionals to do their jobs right, and correctly every time. One example is human error causing a bad vaccine that resulted in the Spanish Flu killing millions. In a case like Ebola going to Atlanta, human error could cause an epidemic. NOT bringing the virus here eliminates that entirely. (Aside from accidentally dropping on the vials we have in our freezers, but lets not add to the pile)

Seems some good came of it.

Experimental Ebola drug based on research discoveries from Canada’s national lab

The experimental Ebola drug given to two American aid workers is based on years of research done at Canada’s National Microbiology Laboratory in Winnipeg. ...

...Sources have told The Canadian Press that two of the three monoclonal antibodies in the drug were designed at the Winnipeg laboratory.

The work was done under the leadership of Dr. Gary Kobinger who heads the special pathogens research program at the national lab.

...The third monoclonal antibody in the product was developed by a U.S. government laboratory.

Rights to the Canadian-designed monoclonal antibodies have been acquired by a U.S. company called Leaf Biopharmaceutical of San Diego, California.

The company is partnered with Mapp Biopharmaceutical, also of San Diego, which makes the experimental therapy, called ZMapp.
