Ebola. Yes. Various state Governors were vowing to call out the National Guard. Various forum posters called for the mass detention of anyone who had travelled to affected areas, including the healthcare workers. A good, solid panic. A year later? Pretty much forgotten. Fox News et al have moved on to new issues to get their viewers quivering with fear and rage over. Thats not to say that Ebola is not a serious health threat in West Africa. Or that we should in any way relent on medical research into vaccines and treatments. That NGOs and Government public health organizations, both here in the US and internationally, need to be vigilant in detecting and preventing the spread of the disease. Medical professionals, public health official, and researchers probably have learned quite a lot from their experience in dealing with the 2014 Ebola outbreak. The rest of us? Not so much.
