There is 1 comment on Recalling the Public Panic in Famous Ebola Court Case

  1. At the time Ebola Zaire, a new strain that was lasting longer and spread much further than other strains had the experts at WHO very concerned the disease would become established outside of Africa. WHO was recommending a 60 day isolation. The absence of symptoms is not reassuring. Ebola has a prodrome when the patient is contagious but no fever or other symptoms. Not being able to impose quarantine puts the public at great risk. Refusing because the governor is a Republican is highly irresponsible and selfish. There is no defense. Hopefully this nonsense will allow laws that are binding to be put in place regarding quarantine. Non-medical judges and attorneys need to stay out of making clinical decisions. All of our lives depend on the right thing being done.
