"The only way to eliminate the Ebola risk to the American public is to stop the outbreak at its source, and that’s what we’re working to do. In addition to that, we’re obviously taking the necessary precautions here to contain an outbreak in the United States. We continue to believe that risk of that is exceedingly low because of the way that Ebola is transmitted and of the modern medical infrastructure that we have in this country."
Word to your mother, Joshie:
The Ebola outbreak in Africa continues to spiral out of control, and the sum total of the entire world's efforts, including ours, has been as effective as spitting on the tracks to stop a freight train at full speed. It's doubled again since September 12th, and spread to three new countries since that time. So far.
The entire Ebola outbreak in THIS country has been BECAUSE of the government, not in spite of it, and every American infected with Ebola to date was taking advantage of the most up-to-date standards of medical protection available in the world, and yet they all still contracted the disease.
So if transmission vectors and medical infrastructure is your big defense plan, we're all completely F*****.
