It's a huge trade-off IMO. One person versus potential harm to the population. I realize that the bigger risk is an unknown patient but again, this doctor put himself at risk. I am also stunned that his wife and children went to Africa to visit him. I would never expose my kids to that environment no matter how safe someone told me it was. You want to treat Ebola? Great, God Bless....the kids are staying here. I wasn't talking about the facilities although they have nothing to do with what the doctor and the care worker did to keep themselves "clean". I was talking about the challenges of obtaining public participation in quarantine rules if necessary. "Those who have contracted the virus and the medical personnel treating them need to be kept under strict quarantine. That's easier said than done, especially in countries where resources are limited and public health protocols are not always heeded. On Monday, Liberia sealed off most of its border crossings (it has kept its main airport open). Nigeria has placed all entry points into the country on "red alert." The threat of the virus spreading beyond the immediate region remains real, and authorities have to be vigilant. A patient may manifest symptoms of the virus only three weeks after getting infected." Because of the fear and stigma associated with Ebola, some of the people have lied about coming into contact with and infected person. They move across borders without telling the truth and spread the virus. "One of the continuing challenges is getting local populations to abide by the edicts of government authorities and foreign health workers. The WHO has repeatedly warned about the risk posed by mourners reclaiming the bodies of the deceased for traditional burial ceremonies. But in some cases during the current outbreak, families have refused to hand over the bodies to officials; some communities have staged roadblocks to halt ambulances and launched protests outside hospitals and clinics." Again, fear and mistrust. That could happen in America too. "The hysteria caused by the spread of Ebola has led also to the spread of rumor and conspiracy theories. Angry crowds have accused foreigners of bringing the virus in their midst". Again, America isn't immune to irrational behavior and we have plenty of people living here from these countries and other 3rd world countries.
