Thursday at the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Africa, Global Health hearing titled, “Combating the Ebola Threat,” the head of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Dr. Tom Frieden said “We are all connected and inevitably there will be travelers, American citizens” who will travel in the infected African countries and come “here with symptoms.”
He added, “It is certainly possible that we could have ill people in the US who develop Ebola after having been exposed elsewhere.”
Actually, anybody with a reasonably functional brain understands this.
The only question is where it comes, and how. Parts of America are still third world, so let’s keep our fingers crossed and hope it doesn’t get established there.
