Ben Brunson was CEO of a clinical testing facility for over a decade. Therefore, he's very familiar with the issues involved in disease transmission and in the steps required to prevent it. It's quite clear that the government is playing politics in not suspending flights to and from the countries where the Ebola outbreak is most serious. This is standard operating procedure and is one of the most effective measures that can be taken to stop the spread of the disease. In addition, the Army should set up a containment centers outside the country for screening those who might be infected. Securing the borders wouldn't be a bad idea either. Assuming that the disease doesn't seriously mutate, following these steps could keep the disease manageable. The biggest problem confronting the West is personal mobility/travel and the effect it has upon speading the disease around the world.
