The superiority of the US health system is an irrelevancy if an airline passenger from an Ebola-affected area comes down with Ebola symptoms while in flight to the US.
What happens if someone begins to show Ebola systems while in flight? There is no way to quarantine the victim. There is no medically guaranteed way to stop the spread of the virus to the other passengers.
We are all suffering from an erroneous terminological association from the HIV/AIDS crisis. That association is the fact that the virus is spread by the exchange of “bodily fluids.”
