You make some great points and I agree with a lot of what you said. The concern that I would raise is that the sheer number of cases creates the potential for a significant mutation to occur before this outbreak is contained. One report suggested that the virus mutates slightly every time a new person is infected. Multiply that by the 10s of thousands of people they are predicting to become infected and the odds of a potentially game changing mutation occurring go up dramatically.

The uproar about the virus "Ebola" is an overreaction from the media and citizens of this country. The chances of a nationwide epidemic are not very high. Our medical response is greater than any other country in the world, and the ways of transmission are not like the flu, and even then does everyone catch the flu? Airborne pathogens work to rapidly transmit through the air by means of a cough, sneeze, then from that point they get on your hands which then gets transferred to everything known to man. Ebola on the other hand cannot survive outside of a host in the same way, it dies. It needs to have body contact with fluidic exchange currently to be transferred. Now what I would be worrying about is how easy it might be for a terrorist or other organization to manipulate the virus and create a bioweapon out of it. The virus itself is not the concern, more so the fact that humans have the ability to create bioweapons and cause mass casualties through minute changes in the structure of the virus. The only thing right now that makes this virus highly unique of its kind, is its ability to connect to cells in different ways, as though it has multiple keys to the human body and animals. It has already shown its ability to mutate, due to the fact that it has already jumped the species barrier into humans to begin with. Future strains of the virus may be much more dangerous then this one. It is my opinion that this outbreak is not the one to freak about, but future ones may very well have some adaptations we are not yet prepared for. The thing is; however, that we as humans also have a way to predict future mutations and prepare for them ahead of time, that is why clinical research into virus' and bacteria are so important, not only because they provide the ability for immunizations and treatments, but also because they provide us an ability to see what the future may hold and attempt to get a head start on creating defenses against future mutations.

This class is for those who understand that the medical system has become profit driven. It is for those who understand that a human life has a price tag, and to big business, it is low. It is better that companies make money than protect citizens. If a person recognizes these simple facts, then it falls upon them to become knowledgeable about their own health needs, and take matters into their own hands in a wise and prepared way.
