With all of the uncertainty surrounding people who have been exposed to the Ebola virus in west Africa, and then come home to suspicion, paranoia, and temporary isolation from society. This tiny germ will travel across the planet, and cause more instability in an already unstable world.
The War of the Worlds was a movie about alien’s attacking the earth, and causing havoc for the earthlings. The alien invaders were finally done in by tiny earth viruses who we were immune to. The modern world is now under attack from within by a virus we have no natural defense from. It is changing the way we see others who we perceive as being “sick”
I have to wonder about Mr Duncan’s final destination in life. Houston, Texas. Was he not aware of his medical condition? He will always be the face of Ebola in the west. Was he sent here for the sole purpose of starting the transmission of the virus to the “infidels” in the western world. In this situation anything is possible.
Ebola will not go away once it has taken root in the west, we will get used to the word “quarantine” in the future. We do not have the luxury of ignoring Ebola because it’s in our backyard now.
