    yeah, let's "round them all up" and lock them up in internment camps and build a wall around Sub-Saharan Africa because a low % of the population died :screwup:

    He who makes comments to distract is typically on the wrong side of the discussion.

    On a constructive note... When battling an infection to win do as the Nigerians did. Shut down the outbound air travel. That is easy--
    but hard if you are more worried about what the optics are than protecting the sovereign interests of the USA.

    Shutting the world down as soon as someone stubs a toe is not the way to go about it. From a statistical stand point, It's not a problem. The way it is being handled is more of a problem than the actual virus IMO.

    Precisely. Excellent illustration of the gap in disagreement in the culture right now. Fortunately every 2 years we have a process in place to create an environment where things can get adjusted.

    Where I live this is a big thing. When the FLU hits and panic starts when people cannot tell the difference initially things will only get worse.

    But you will have statistics to back your self up while the economy is further affected in a bad way.

    When did erring on the side of CAUTION ever become out of style?

    It is not.

    Statistically you will drive home safely but you will wear a belt just in case.

    Likewise..you will not be robbed tonight yet you will lock your doors at your house just in case.

    I could go on and on where common sense should be used and the flights stopped.

    If ebola is so safe why are the airport screeners dressed up like the nurses were with masks originally when Duncan was admitted to the hospital?

    These are the indicators that people with common sense notice.

    A flight ban keeps people out. The remainder of your post distracts from the discussion....:rolleyes:

    As to the vaccine... There can be sizable damage to commerce here in the US in the time needed to get the vaccine ready.

    Stop the flights and the threat is greatly reduced near term and commerce here goes on as best as it can.
