For years we've seen all the movies coming out of Hollywood with storylines of mass infections and outbreaks. These movies always show the government
response being some well oiled machine kicking into action, with quarantines, everyone in hazmat gear, all very professional and by the numbers.
The reality we are seeing so far is more akin to the keystone cops, except they were actually funny!
The official responses so far just seem to get more and more bizarre and beggars belief. For instance, the paramedic ambulance crew that took the guy
to hospital not being informed they'd carried an Ebola patient for 2 days. The family of the infected being left in the apartment with all the
infected and soiled material for several days. The bizarrely casual treatment of the waste matter outside the apartment etc....etc....!
Oh, and the airline (United if I remember correctly) is trying to trace the passengers who were on the same 2 flights as the patient. I wonder if
they have taken the aircraft out of service too? No mention of that anywhere yet that I have seen.
I read earlier that the LDS church is evacuating their 274 missionaries in Liberia and Sierra Leone to neighbouring countries. No mention of any
quarantine period or similar measures.
It all just seems so completely panicky and with seemingly no direction or leadership in dealing with it all. I guess profits and PR are the major
considerations as always and after a few million deaths they'll still be on our tv screens talking about lessons learned and how they'll do better
