Did we learn nothing from the AIDS virus? It, too, started in Africa. As long as it was confined to Africa, gays and drug users, not much was done to stop it. But then it began affecting others. AIDS was not easily transmitted, but panic set in. Children were infected by blood transfusions, then ostracized and not allowed to attend school. Women were infected by their husbands.
We can’t make the same mistakes twice. We have an opportunity with Ebola. We can help Africa stop it now before it has a chance travel the world. We can’t play ostrich with a fatal disease again.
