I imagine that a lot of people at the CDC are sweating bullets over this. What really scares them is that the general population no longer believes anything the government says. There are as many liberals who are distrustful of the government as conservatives. So it’s not a political thing. How are they going to keep order if the numbers start climbing past the 23 beds. Even if this does not become a pandemic, the hit on the economy will be great. Already hearing people talking about driving instead of flying. It seems that several flights a day are being disrupted by ebola scares. If people start cutting back on movies, meal out, etc. the business community will definitely feel it.
