This is being overblown. The US is far more capable to deal with this infection than anywhere on the African continent.

I was reading an article the other day about how it would be very unlikely for the virus to spread to the US. They said between the way it is transmitted and the physical state of the infected person it would be unlikely to make it's way through Europe to North America. I guess all those theories go out the window though when we transport infected people directly to Atlanta.

I'd much rather have patients identified with the disease and heading to facilities capable of taking care of those patients. That's infinitely better than some unknown patient randomly showing up at Podunk Hospital after spending time in West Africa.

Some of the folks infected are so called "experts" on the disease. Why should we trust anyone including the CDC to keep people safe? Should leave this disease and the people with it right where it was found.

Maybe not perfect, but it's not exactly easy to catch. This article spells out the risks rather well: How Ebola spreads: Important facts on disease transmission | syracuse.com

Giving me flashbacks


The year 2002, the battle's filled with the Wu
6 million devils just died from the Bubonic flu
Or the Ebola virus, under the reign of King cyrus
You can see the weakness of a man right through his iris

Look at the conditions they were working in and compare it to any industrialized nations healthcare system. The comparisons are not legitimate. The UK has done this with similar West Africa diseases as described in this article: Ebola outbreak: Royal Air Force 'on standby' to bring back infected Brits - Telegraph

Exactly. So much fear, is already bringing out the hatred.

This is one of those rare incidents where I have to agree with cruiserdaddy. Sure, in America these two people would get better care but it also puts an enitre country of people in potential jeopardy if the disease finds a way to spread.

Does no one remember in June when 86 CDC members were exposed to Anthrax? We trust these people to contain anything? I commend the Americans who were infected for helping people out, but stay there. Its a risk you took dealing with the virus. Don't risk others lives because of your actions.

Why would you agree with that? The CDC and the WHO are taking aggressive steps to make sure this does not continue to spread without their knowledge. That is when we would have major issues to contend with. Who would you trust more to control this and minimize the infections? I guess we could hope and pray it does not come ashore.

Comparing Anthrax and Ebola isn't even close in the way they are transmitted.

I never compared the two. Simply stated the fact the CDC will be involved which recently exposed themselves to anthrax.
