I did, but I'm thinking ahead.
So, you quarantine the immediates, and they get ill. Then you start doing the same to the ones they came in contact with ... it snowballs until you have a ton of beds taken up.

It's completely obvious to me that this has spun out of control. Medical personnel Undermanned, understaffed, ill-informed, and bogged down with bureaucratic BS and departmental control breaking down.
Air carriers are arriving hourly from West Africa, no inspections at departure or arrival and people panicking and leaving the infected countries in droves, headed home to all parts of the world.
Behold a pale horse...

I had a professor in college who was studying the spread of SAR's in conjunction with a University in Norway, what they discovered is that in the USA they will simply quarantine whole cities, if they think the problem is bad. In contrast European countries try their best to get the specific people whom could be infected, into individual quarantine, before they get to the point of having to quarantine a whole city. That's why it seems loosey-goosey right now because if it gets bad, they will write of a whole city. America is the last developed (1st world) nation you want to be in if there is some kind of epidemic.
yes quarantine them in a hospital...
How about quarantine in the hospital or CDC???
You make it sound like they are cripple. They can change all that stuff themselves.
What do you thinks going to happen should be Ebola was be present? Sounds like you are suggesting they die in their apartments.
