Ebola only a plane ride away from USA

Ebola could easily arrive in the USA on board a plane, but wouldn't spread far, experts say. The growing Ebola outbreak in West Africa serves as a grim reminder that deadly viruses are only a plane ride away from the USA, health experts say. The outbreak is the largest and deadliest on record, with more than 670 deaths and more than 1,200 infections in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Fatality rates for Ebola have been as high as 90% in past outbreaks, according to the World Health Organization. http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2014/07/28/ebola-potential-to-spread/13267909/

Thank you for the facts, Mark. The outbreak of Ebola also serves us as a grim reminder to maintain a solid health infrastructure in this country. This means paying attention to the health of everyone in this country. Everyone. Those with the ability to pay, and those who do not; those who have legal status, and those who do not; those who are fortunate enough to live in an area where there are more doctors than good jobs for them, and those who live in areas where medicine is still stuck in the 1960's and medical personnel are in short supply.

P.S. The outbreak of Ebola also serves us as a grim reminder that widespread knowledge of basic health information, minus the disinformation, is necessary to maintaining our country's health. Ebola will not spread far in this country: by God's grace, we have a cold climate in 90% of the landmass to limit tropical diseases; the other reasons are a matter of choosing to exercise good sense and good will over ignorance, greed, and fear.
