What people may or may not have believed in pre-scientific times & the way we understand the world now aren't comparable. It's like arguing we shouldn't trust neurosurgery today because people once thought trepanning was an effective way to treat certain conditions.

Thank you for the correction.  My original point, had you actually read it instead of dwelling on garbage comments surrounding it, was that a travel ban/quarantine until past the incubation period for Ebola before returning into the US (or even between states and other countries) would help prevent that.


Surely you aren't going to say that would not have prevented this case from landing here stateside?

Why prevent it? He was already in isolation when he was diagnosed, it's not going to spread, he'll probably be fine in a week. Do we also need to put people who suffer from colds and flus into isolation? Those are more contagious and in some cases more deadly.

No he wasn't.  He started feeling sluggish days before--that is showing symptoms.  He then isolated himself when developing a 103 degree temperature.  He wasn't in isolation the entire time.


The thing about colds and flus, is that they are worldwide.  This is in small areas and still killing a lot of people with no real treatment yet outside of experimental procedures.


We have resistance against colds and flus, but not ebola.

      UK: £20 million fund for tech to build country's virus resilience
      by Paul Hill

      The UK government has announced £20 million of funding to help businesses develop technologies that will improve the country’s resilience against the coronavirus, which has now claimed more than 3,000 lives in the UK alone. Each project will receive funding between £25,000 and £50,000.

      According to the announcement, the technologies that the government wants to help fund are those which would allow the economy to continue ticking during this and future outbreaks of diseases. Projects should be focused on finding new ways to work to ensure continued productivity across key UK industries, help protect against long-term impacts, or help support sectors such as delivery services, food manufacturing, retail, and transport.

      Commenting on the news, Science Minister, Amanda Solloway, said:

      If you’re interested and have a proposal you can enter your details online, the proposals will be evaluated by Innovate UK. To be eligible, all projects must begin by June 2020 and should be available to the public towards the end of this year.

      Rainbow Six Siege's Outbreak co-op event kicks off in March, alien parasite incoming
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      Ubisoft announced the third year of support for its highly-successful tactical shooter, Rainbow Six Siege, last year. But this time around, the game is straying from its usual update pattern, as kicking off the new year of content will be a brand-new limited-time cooperative game mode titled Outbreak.

      Details surrounding this mode were scarce until today, with Ubisoft giving a sneak peak of the first upcoming Operation to the game in 2018, Chimera. As seen in the trailer above, the co-op event is connected to a USSR space capsule that has crash landed in the city of Truth or Consequences in New Mexico.

      Ubisoft describes the situation that players will be dropping into as follows:

      The enemies will range from "exploding monstrosities to hulking horrors," and players will be able to tackle the new dangers with Operation Chimera's operators Lion and Finca, as well as Lord Tachanka, Ash, Buck, Doc, Smoke, Ying, Kapkan, Glaz, and Recruit.

      The three player mode will be playable in two difficulty settings, Normal and Pandemic. While both modes will supposedly require coordination among teammates to succeed, the latter difficulty will enable friendly fire and buff the enemies for a more challenging experience.

      The Outbreak mode will feature three exclusive levels designed specifically for the co-op mode, that will be "larger and more open than the game’s competitive maps," while keeping the usual high levels of destructive environments.

      Rainbow Six Siege Operation Chimera will be going online on March 6 on all platforms for free, with the Outbreak mode running from that day until April 3. Technical Test Server participants on all platforms will be able to help test the content starting February 20, however, only PC players will have access to the Outbreak event in the test server.
