There is no containing this disease! This is simply Patient Zero for the United States.

It's ludicrous the way they keep downplaying this. It reduces vigilance.
How does that make sense?
they ask each person "So.. have you been to Africa recently?" They should, but I doubt many facilities do. Perhaps they will though, after today.

Well looks like this is no longer a 3rd world problem. We will now see if the many people saying that this wouldn't spread in the US because if our 1st world status and care will hold true.
I personally think that it has the potential to spread faster in the US due to our interconnected cities and commerce. People here travel a lot and often, and many people have terrible hygiene.
