U.S. troops assisting in Ebola mission may be quarantined
Washington (CNN) -- In an unprecedented move to protect U.S. troops that might be exposed to Ebola, U.S. military commanders are being given the authority to quarantine troops for 21 days at a Defense Department facility where they will be monitored for signs of the disease and treated if they do contract the virus, a Defense Department memo explained.

The memo, which was obtained by CNN, spells out the details of the military's plan for the first time.

Re: U.S. troops assisting in Ebola mission may be quarantined
So, when the media, whenever they so decide to, start reporting that this has become a pandemic in our respective locale. Even as we go into this flu season and people start showing signs and symptoms of flu, do you think the economy that take the hit if people have to stay at home for 21 days? Will you take the chance that the person sneezing next to you hast got ebola?

This is how society falls apart folks. Based on fear.

Good questions. If we had to be involved seems it would have cost a lot less to have supported them in a quarantine in their infected areas by shipping them food. That was one of the original reasons they couldn't/wouldn't implement quarantines, because the people had to get food daily and would starve to death if quarantined.

It's gone a long way in a short time that U.S. troops wouldn't be in contact with people with ebola to:

"If a service member comes into contact with blood or body fluids from an Ebola patient, or a dead body, while not wearing protective gear, or if the gear is compromised, they will be evacuated from the region and quarantined."
