Ebola Patient Shouldn’t Have Boarded Plane, Officials Say

By Arthur Delaney

Top health officials said Wednesday that a nurse infected with Ebola never should have boarded a plane.

And the Obama administration’s reasoning for allowing plane flights from affected countries into this country is what exactly? If this person with Ebola got on a plane and that was wrong, why are our officials allowing people from West Africa to get on planes and possibly bring the deadly virus here, as Thomas Duncan did? While we must provide massive amounts of money and manpower to fight Ebola in affected countries, we need a travel ban–now. What part of “protect the public health” don’t they understand?
