  • We should quarantine all infected ebola patients in Washington D.C. Also no one should be allowed to leave the city

  • We need to bomb every runway in Liberia. This will slow down people who want to leave Liberia and come here.

To arbitrary are you talking about the world or a specific country.

^Globally i guess. Misterman - The R0 is 1.8 in Africa prob higher in a western society so it is very infectious and a top tier pathogen for bio defence risk.

A bioweapon attack is specifically engineered to resist known cures but also to be curable. A natural outbreak is not necessarily curable and no one has pre-engineered the vaccine so it can't be reverse engineered.

The tracing of contact with infected people is more effecient when curfews are enforced. The 2 infected people already have over 100 contacted people under observation for 21 days, thats just for two people that were known about early.

A quarantine does not require bioweapon specialists... I think some of you are genuinely unhinged.
