    How many U.S. doctors have ever seen a case of Ebola?  How many could accurately diagnose it if they did.

      referring to our medical people have direct experience with Ebola.  I was referring to them knowing how to properly quarantine people.   Ebola stops spreading when you stop touching the fluids of infected people.  If we realized we had cases in the US, we would need to slam an immediate quarantine down, but I'm rather confident it wouldn't turn into a massive epidemic here.

      That doesn't mean it isn't still scary.
