And to think they’ve had months to prepare what the response would be. With 100% certainty they knew ebola would get here sooner or later. They didn’t know where or what the circumstances but right now the CDC, FEMA, the pertinent State Agencies etc have only a single case to focus on and they can’t seem to get their act together. Having managed operational, production, and financial functions for 40 years, the problem is nobody is tending the details. They’ve only got the big picture plans such as “we’ll quarantine close contacts” without peeling away the subsequent layers such as “how will the quarantined people get food?”, “how do we decontaminate areas”? How do we dispose of waste materials?” etc etc. The devil is always in the details, and with months to develop detailed plans, they failed to do so. This is how pandemics spread.
