salyavin, wrt your comment that a 60 day quarantine would ruin a holiday: 
probably ebola would too! I think he was simply making the point that we 
quarantine horses for 60 but humans entering the country, not at all. Should be 
21 days from last exposure to ebola imo.

      A 60 day quarantine for people? That'll ruin a few holidays!
I wonder what disease he'll campaign to stop crossing borders? Flu seems the 
most obvious, it kills more every year than AIDS and Ebola ever will. And think 
of what it would cost to set up and run a human health passport! and it will 
all be a waste of time as people will forge it anyway. If only we were simple 
as horses...

Richard, you might find this interesting. I just received it this morning with 
Subject line: human health and horse health
The the following letter was submitted to theeditor of the Lewiston Morning 
Tribune:

Editor, Lewiston Morning Tribune:

IfI wish to import a horse into the United States from Liberia or anyAfrican 
country other than Morocco, the horse needs to undergo a 60 dayquarantine 
period at a USDA approved quarantine facility prior tomingling with the general 
population of horses in this country. Africahas a disease called African Horse 
Sickness that does not exist in theUS; this is the way we have kept it out of 
this country. African HorseSickness does not cause disease in people, only 
horses; our governmenthas determined that it would be devastating to the US 
horse industry ifit were to come here.

The United States (and virtually all othercountries) require a myriad of tests 
and often quarantine prior tobringing in a foreign animal.

I can’t legally cross state linesin the United States with a horse or cow 
without a health certificatesigned by a USDA accredited veterinarian stating 
that the animal hasbeen inspected and found free of infectious disease. In most 
cases bloodtests are also required. In fact I can’t legally cross the Snake 
Riverand ride my horse in Washington without a health certificate and anegative 
blood test for Equine Infectious Anemia.

I’m notcomplaining; the United States of America, the States of Idaho 
andWashington as well as the other 48 states take the health of ourlivestock 
very seriously, and we have a very good record at keepingforeign animal 
diseases out of our country. I am happy to do my part tomaintain biosecurity in 
our animal population.

If I am a residentof Liberia incubating Ebola, to enter the United States all I 
need todo is present a valid visa, and lie when asked if I have been exposed 
toEbola. Within hours (no quarantine required) I can be walking thestreets of 
any city in the United States.

I feel very fortunate to live in a country that values our animals so highly.

Gofigure. 

At first there was neglect, then a panic, now it's ananti-panic situation. It 
looks like the average American issafe. Rita has a better chance of winning the 
state lottery thanyou have of getting Ebola. But, the situation may get a 
lotworse before it gets better. The scary part is how Ebola canmutate and is 
subject to natural selection. 

At this point there's not much science to it - anything we saynow can't be 
carved in stone. 

This Ebola Halloween scare is like a nightmare, except it's reallife: the 
walking dead, sneezing and coughing, getting sick onthe sidewalk and crapping 
all over the subways - the result of arabid virus infection; zombies, what's 
left of them, wanderingall over town and the countryside trying to get some 
help,any help. 

Repeat after me:

"...people infected with Ebola cannot spread the disease untilthey begin to 
display symptoms, and it cannot be spread throughthe air."

The Ebola virus ishighly contagious, but only when you have a fever andare 
exhibiting symptoms. When treating an Ebola patient youhave to wear protective 
suits and avoid contact with thepatient's bodily fluids. Everyone who has 
contacted thepatient should be monitored for symptoms. 

According to what I've read, the best way to prevent thespread of Ebola is to 
treat the disease and try to eradicateit where it originated - in West Africa. 
So, some doctors,nurses, and care givers and the U.S. army are going over 
thereto help the people. 

 The question is, what to do when the caregivers comeback to their home 
countries. What would you do when a doctoror nurse pr somebody returns to the 
U.S?
 
   
   - Checked forsymptoms at at the airport
   - Self-quarantinedat home
   - Self-monitoredat home
   - Tested at amajor medical center
or,

   
   - Not allowedback into the U.S.A.   

   - Tracked
   - Hounded
   - Hunted
   - Arrested
   - Locked up
   - All of theabove
   - None of theabove
 So, who isgoing to want to go over to Africa to care for Ebola patients?
