Ebola has never been found in the Western hemisphere, but now we have deliberately brought it here. That is fact. The question is, was it the right thing to do? On the one hand the patients should get better care, on the other hand, we could have sent resources to Sub-Saharan Africa to enhance their care there. On the one hand, the risk of spread should be very low, on the other hand, the low risk is far higher then "no" risk. Finally, the fact is, the patients were experts in this disease, and using all the "right" hazmat gear, yet they still contracted it. Should that inspire confidence that we understand enough of how to contain it "here"?
All food for thought. So, again, my question. Was it right to bring these patients with Ebola, into the USA?
