Theoretically 96 ebola patients could close every hospital to all other medical emergencies for 6,000,000 people. – See more at: http://community.shtfschool.com/forums/topic/do-the-math/page/2/#post-27019

This is why the they will shift the approach from the current level of heroics to save each ebola patient to just palliative care outside of the hospitals once a certain threshold in the ebola count is passed. Far too many people will die if hospitals start being closed off to non-ebola patients.
