Why we shouldn’t panic about Ebola (yet)

I almost never watch Fox News, but I think this is a sensible and factual report.

While I as an individual am not fearful of the Ebola virus, I believe that my government and the rest of the world’s governments need to take action against the spread of this virus, and to be prepared for the emergence of new mutant diseases that are immune to our drugs and treatments.

I think we Americans need to do better in making sure our hospitals are prepared for such emergencies.  I think we should help poor countries maintain good sanitation and public health services, rather than siding with banks and international organizations who demand that public services be sacrificed so debt could be collected.

If nothing is done, someday there will be reason for Americans to panic, but that day is not here.

    I’m surprised Fox would do such a level approach for Ebola of all issues, that’s impressive. I’m currently working on an article about the crisis for my campus paper, and one of the most interesting things I’ve found during research is the fact it kills so quickly actually makes it difficult to spread.
