    Are there people with Ebola coming through the southern borders?

    Over seventy has already been identified, coming from three Ebola countries.

    We are not securing our borders, are we?

    Why are they putting these people in public hospitals instead of private facilities?

    Read "the Hot Zone" by Richard Preston to understand Ebola. For a quick view, google the wiki on the book. You may want to discount the two-line "whatevers" from the clearly uneducated trolls who dismiss the issue as unimportant and/or easily controlled. It is neither.

    Why is it then that over 100 health workers in the infected areas have become infected with the disease itself? Apparently wearing protective clothing isnt enough. To say there will never be be an outbreak here is just prideful and arrogant.

    Ebola can only be transmitted via direct contact with either infected blood or semen. The risk of this infection spinning out of control in the U.S. is zero - the only reason it's spreading modestly in Africa is because of the way they handle dead bodies there. People need to get educated on what this virus is and what it isn't - all these precautions the infected clinicians are being subjected to only exist to placate an uneducated and paranoid U.S. population.

    Children are the ones lost in all these countries. Their ancestors have fought for years and haven't done the necessary things for children's welfare and safety. The children don't get the education they need and learn their ancestor's trade of fighting for life They don't have liberty to enjoy a life or much of a life. They life as generations live.

    These missionaries wanted to bring hope and vitality to these people but have a deadly disease that as impacted the rest of their life. having lived in similar countries, it is a shame to see what we had in our country move downward to what other countries have. Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness has made our country still a viable nation for many to still want to admire. We have been a refuge for generations but their own lands have great potential if people change their hearts and souls. Hate is what the adversary wants and war in other people's countries have taken a toll on our own dedicated and valued military and their families for almost 20 years.

    War on poverty takes a toll on our missionary doctors and others.

    I had deep concerns about this disease coming to the US via airline passengers and still do. However, if all who were infected or suspected of being infected are processed in the manner that I read in this article (airplane equipped to handle such patients, police escort, protective clothing, quarantined and self-contained patient rooms, hospitals designed to handle such diseases) I would feel more at ease about it.

    I think they should quarantine people infected to Africa and not risk it being spread here to the United States.
