Ebola kills 90% of the people it infects and it spreads with little effort. It could come to the United States by plane infecting many people at a rapid pace. Decades ago we would quarantine areas with a disease this virulent and I think we may need to do that again at this time. We should send help and brave volunteers to these areas but no one should be permitted to come out of an infected area until the disease is eradicated there. We can try to develop vaccines and treatments but its not going to be fast enough to stop a disease like Ebola. Ebola can also mutate or other diseases can arise that are just as bad. A quarantine is the right type of action to take for the purpose of preventing more deaths.
