You bring up a valid point, there has not been an Ebola outbreak in the USA, or any level 4 biological hazard for that matter. Except for Duncan, who
lied to get into the country and the 2 nurses who came down with this Disease. Course if we use the Duncan case as an example, the reality is that
the USA is not ready for an outbreak of a level 4 contagion at all. There were mistakes made, and it seems as though all though put into voluntary
quarantine, several broke said quarantine several times, thinking that they were alright.
There is an old saying that makes the best sense here: Doctors make the worst patients. These medical persons who are over there, they should be
commended for their effort, and more should be done to help alleviate the suffering in those countries that are stricken. However, the reality is
that when it comes to something that deadly, why are the very same protocols that say the CDC uses when working with such in a lab are not used in the
rest of the country? The CDC protocols, and those in all labs that have access to and work with a level 4 contagion is far stricter than what is
being shown outside in the rest of the country. Perhaps we should take a page out of their playbook and err on the side of caution and start thinking
in a proactive stance, rather than a reactive one.
The measures to prevent the spread have to be harsh and without question, the first would be a mandatory quarantine in a proper facility for all of
those who have been exposed to or have worked with this kind of disease. It means full decontamination for those who are working to aid those who
have such and no more voluntary quarantine where one can decide it is ok for them to break. And the facilities should be where they can be isolated
and contained, working as if they do have the disease, until they are cleared by the medical facility with 3 checks and screenings.
