"21 Days: An expert in biological warfare warns against complacency in public measures against Ebola"
Interesting. Apparently, as has been the case in other instances recently--proper diet, climate change, among others--the science is not "settled".
For one objection, Hatfill wants it known that, while it must be emphasized that airborne droplet and particle transmission between humans has not been evident in this outbreak, aerosol droplet transmission of Ebola virus has been shown in animal studies. “It is therefore irresponsible for government health officials to emphatically state that aerosol transmission does not occur,” he writes. He also believes the argument against a national quarantine is “inexcusable in light of the size of the current West African epidemic.”
But the politics are the same as almost always: "Life-saving drugs and deadly delays".
