As to the vaccine... There can be sizable damage to commerce here in the US in the time needed to get the vaccine ready.

Stop the flights and the threat is greatly reduced near term and commerce here goes on as best as it can.

THEY aren't going to impose any travel restrictions. Political Correctness comes first. American citizens health and piece of mind second. Elections in November.

What do you think it would cost to shut down DFW? Do you think that Texas would be on board with this?
Distracting? Do you really think that there wouldn't be a vaccine for ebola if had developed years ago in Los Angeles?

A flight ban will keep SOME People out, not all. A closing of borders is useless unless you close everything. Roads, ships, flights, trains and so forth. You have Mexico and you have Canada for example. How many people cross those borders legally or illegally every day?

Sure, you can possibly delay a little by stopping flights and win maybe some time, but if ebola evolves into something bigger you won't escape it unless you dig yourself down far from people.

Uselessly paranoid people like Trump should keep their mouth shut. Control is an illusion when it comes to pandemic viruses or bacteria.

Agree.

Did we ban flights from terrorist countries after 911? No, we upped security.

You can cure a headache by cutting off the head, but it is simply not a viable solution.
