Yet, as in, if she gets sick. Probably for three weeks after exposure.
Do we really have to go though that stupid, ignorant ebola panic again?
Maybe. I guess. Good distraction. I suppose.
Hardly. The less that is done to contain an outbreak at its source the more dangerous it becomes. Reducing incentive to help, doesn't help.
Nope. Just considering what is known about the transmission of the disease and history. Facts, not blind fear.
The immigrants that got caught by the border patrol have been found to have diseases that people thought you couldn't get anymore.
But in the case of Ebola, the stakes are just too high.
But the risks not so much, in a modern medical environment.
What costs then? Who has died in the US? All you are talking about is risk, which is very low, not costs.
It's not enough to know the odds, the benefits and costs have to be taken into account in any sound decision making process.
