Thankfully, protocols have been developed for dealing with this crisis this time: At least 10 Americans who may have come into contact with Ebola-stricken health worker in Sierra Leone flown back to US | Daily Mail Online
At least 10 Americans who might have come into contact with the deadly Ebola virus in Sierra Leone are being flown back to the United States for observation, officials said on Saturday.
The transfer comes amid concerns the citizens could have been exposed to an unidentified US health worker who recently tested positive for the disease while volunteering in West Africa.
The worker was flown in a private jet to a National Institutes of Health (NIH) hospital on Friday. They are said to be in a serious condition. It is not clear how they became infected with Ebola,
We have the dangerous measles outbreak that began in Disneyland in California which was brought in from overseas and which spread rapidly thanks to all the parents who are paranoid about giving children shots to prevent dangerous diseases.
The ebola crisis isn’t over but at least it isn’t also raging wildly out of control. But it is still quite deadly and in particular, when someone dies is when it is the deadliest and evidently one of the volunteers who is sick is very sick but will be in a total isolation unit and the quarantines will be enforced vigorously.
Previously, potential carriers blew off quarantine and ran amok, mocking the system and daring the government to catch them. Throughout history, it has been one of the biggest directives of a government to protect people from disease.
This is why sanitation and building of hospitals is a top priority of governments. Stopping diseases at the borders certainly is a government directive and in the past, it was severely enforced.
