Life is so fragile. Thanks to the kind doctor (and his family) who was treating patients with Ebola...Someday, everything will be made right...

I don't understand enough. But... since there is no known cure, why don't they just isolate those infected instead of treating them and exposing others to the disease? Why not quarantine? Does anyone know?

A blanket quarantine isn't the solution because this disease ins't 100% fatal. Aggressive medical care increases a sick person's chances of surviving, so we have to let the physicians do their work. What baffles me is how careful these docs are with outfitting, yet they still contract the disease on occasion. These doctors are brave heroes, now more than ever.
