It is the world's first Ebola epidemic, and it's spiraling out of control. It's bad now, and it's going to get worse in the very near future. There is still a window of opportunity to tamp it down, but that window is closing. We really have to act now.
This outbreak is moving ahead of efforts to control it.
The level of outbreak is beyond anything we've seen-or even imagined.
This is different than every other Ebola situation we've ever had. It's spreading widely, throughout entire countries, through multiple countries, in cities and very fast.
I could not possibly overstate the need for an urgent response.
Emergency rooms are closed, many hospital wards are as well leaving people who are sick with heart disease, trauma, pregnancy complications, pneumonia, malaria and all the everyday health emergencies with nowhere to go.
People are hungry in these communities. They don't know how they are going to get food.
Reports of illegal migrants carrying deadly diseases such as swine flu, dengue fever, Ebola virus and tuberculosis are particularly concerning.
It's a tragedy that modernity has released this Ebola beast into the world. It renders humans untouchable, and that's sickening. The international response so far has been scandalous. China has delivered f**k all.
Sending us Ebola bombs in the form of sweaty Glaswegians just isn't cricket.
We feel confident that there won't be an outbreak.
The bottom line here is that I have no doubt that we will control this importation or this case of Ebola so that it does not spread widely throughout this country. There's no doubt in my mind, we will stop it here.
Even Doctors Without Borders in West Africa are moving the fatality rate from 50 percent down to 30 percent-I bet we can do substantially better than that here.
I don't know … but I think this Ebola epidemic is a form of population control.
If someone has Ebola at a cocktail party they're contagious and you can catch it from them.
We're very prepared: Infection-control people in hospitals over the past two months have been reviewing all their infection- control procedures because we anticipated just this sort of thing happening-a person coming from West Africa, they were healthy at the time they traveled, but got sick here.
...we hope to stop the transmission in six to nine months
It is certainly possible that someone who has had contact with this patient could develop Ebola, but there is no doubt in my mind that we will stop it here.
The U.S. must immediately stop all flights from EBOLA infected countries or the plague will start and spread inside our borders. Act fast!
In 1976 I discovered Ebola - now I fear an unimaginable tragedy
Sierra Leone and Liberia must remain vigilant, that if you think somebody is sick with Ebola, you must get help immediately. Otherwise there could be a resurgence of Ebola. So everybody must remain vigilant.
Tom Cotton voted against preparing America for pandemics like Ebola.
Society has no business to permit degenerates to reproduce their kind
The U.S. cannot allow EBOLA infected people back. People that go to far away places to help out are great-but must suffer the consequences!
I was in a town of about 10,000 people, and a shipping container with a rusty microscope was their medical clinic.
